Silver Rounds and Premiums
Fine silver rounds like this one featuring the Saint Gaudens design are one of the best ways to add more silver bullion to your collection. All precious metal coins have much of their value determined by the current spot price. The reason that rounds are a more economical choice, is because silver rounds carry very little premium. The premium that you pay when you purchase precious metals like silver is not dependent on the spot price. Premiums make the purchase price higher than the spot price, so the less premium you pay, the better it is for stacking. That is the main advantage that fine silver rounds have over government minted bullion coins.
.999 Fine Silver
These Saint Gaudens silver rounds are made of .999 fine silver. That means that these rounds have the same level of purity as the American Silver Eagle. They also contain 1 full Troy oz. of silver.
This fine silver round displays the famous version of Liberty as depicted by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Originally, this design was used for the American Double Eagle, which was a circulating $20 coin that was 90% gold. The Saint-Gaudens design is considered by some to be the most beautiful of any American coin by many.
The exact design on this silver round is closer to the updated version of the Saint-Gaudens design that began to be used in 1912. This is because the reverse of the round features an eagle in flight in front of the sun and its rays, with the words: “IN GOD WE TRUST.” This is the same type of reverse as that used on the Saint-Gaudens $20 gold piece until it was discontinued in 1933. However, the words at the top are different. The reverse of this round bears the words: “.999 FINE SILVER” and “ONE TROY OZ.”
The obverse side of this round shows Liberty holding a torch and olive branch in front of the sun. Liberty is surrounded by a circle of stars, with the word “LIBERTY” over her head, and if you look closely, you can see the United States Capitol building behind her.

Whether you want 1 or 100, these silver rounds are a great buy and one of the best ways to build up the amount of physical silver you own.
