Many investors and collectors prefer 2 oz. Silver Rounds over any other silver round weights because they are still small enough to effortlessly store and stack but also offer more silver for their money than 1 oz. pieces. Plus, Silver rounds containing two full ounces of pure silver are an excellent choice for those looking to buy silver in smaller quantities and at an affordable price.
Silver bullion enthusiasts also appreciate the wonderful range of designs on offer from the various private mints that produce 2 oz. Silver Rounds minted from .999 fine silver. As 2 oz. Silver Rounds have a larger surface area than 1 oz. and fractional silver round weights, their creators can be more inventive with regards to their overall designs.
Regardless of size, silver rounds are more commonly produced by private mints, rather than government mints. Some of the most famous manufacturers of 2 oz. Silver Rounds include but are not limited to:
We should also point out that the Elemetal Mint is made up of three companies, such as NTR Metals, Ohio Precious Metals and Provident Metals. It is also now the world’s largest American-owned precious metals company and is well-known for manufacturing perhaps the widest range of silver rounds, along with a selection of gold and silver bars.
Whether it is a replica of an old coin or a more modern design, there’s a 2 oz. Silver Round out there to enhance every collection or portfolio. Below, we discuss just a few of the most sought-after 2 oz Silver Rounds available today.
Produced at the Intaglio Mint in Texas, the 2 oz. Winged Liberty Silver Round features one of America’s most loved coin designs, which was originally created by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916. On the obverse of the silver round is the beautiful image of Winged Liberty, as well as the traditional inscriptions LIBERTY and IN GOD WE TRUST. The year 1916 is also stamped on the round’s reverse to honor the year in which Weinman came up with the design, along with his initials AW.
The reverse side of the 2 oz. Winged Liberty Silver Round displays an American bald eagle with open wings and a banner that reads GOD BLESS AMERICA. This incredibly detailed eagle is surrounded by the engravings HOME OF THE FREE and BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE. The round’s weight, purity and metal content can also be found on the reverse.
Even though the 2 oz. Winged Liberty Silver Round is meant to have a similar appearance to the original coin, it does not have any legal tender value. However, it is a stunning piece that contains 2 troy ounces of .999 pure silver and is ideal for anyone wishing to accumulate two ounces of silver bullion or hobbyists who enjoy collecting silver rounds with a likeness to vintage coins.
The 2 oz. Mount Rushmore Silver Round is actually the 4th release from the American Landmarks Series, a collection of rounds produced by the Elemetal Mint and celebrate North American landmarks. On the round’s obverse are the famous cliffs with the carved sculptures that are located in the Black Hills of South Dakota and visited by two million tourists every year. The only engraving on the round’s obverse is MT RUSHMORE.
Stamped on the reverse side of the 2 oz. Mount Rushmore Silver Round is the image of North America, as well as the inscriptions, AMERICAN LANDMARKS and 2 oz .999 FINE SILVER. The round is also struck in ultra-high relief and is a wonderful example of the detailed silver pieces that the Elemetal Mint is well-known for mastering.
For those not interested in collecting various 2 oz. Silver Round designs, the 2 oz. Scottsdale Silver Stacker Round composed of 2 troy ounces of .999 fine silver is the perfect solution. Having said that, while the round has a less detailed appearance, it’s very attractive and features the Scottsdale Mints lion logo on both sides.
The 2 oz. Scottsdale Silver Stacker Round is unique in that the obverse image of the lion is a convex inter-locking three-dimensional feature. On the rounds reverse is the same lion, however, the image is sunken (concave). The round has been designed in this way so that the convex obverse face can fit perfectly inside the concave reverse of other Scottsdale Silver Stacker Rounds. Not only does this impressive silver round stack and interlock with the mint’s 2 oz. Stacker Rounds but also other Stacker Round sizes produced by Scottdale.
Whether it is one of the designs mentioned above or any other 2 oz. Silver Round, Capital Gold Group can provide you with the pieces you most want to include in your collection or portfolio. Please remember, 2 oz. Silver Rounds are the same as any other silver round weight in that they are not currency and their value is mostly tied to their silver content.
