Why purchase this 2020 Buel Spoon Fishing Lure Shaped Silver coin?

Some of the world's most useful inventions were created purely by accident. Innovations included among those unintentional discoveries are the microwave oven, penicillin, the implantable pacemaker, and the spoon shaped fishing lure. While fishing on Lake Bomoseen in Vermont in 1834, Julio T. Buel accidentally dropped his spoon into the water. As he watched the spoon flutter and twist, he observed a fish claiming the spinning object as its prize. This prompted Buel to cut a spoon and add a hook, thus creating the spoon lure! This 2020 dated spoon shaped coin replicating Buel's design even includes a hook! Struck at the Mayer Mint from 1/2 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, mintage is limited to only 2,000 pieces.

Commemorative Lure Design

The reverse features a portrait of the lure's creator, surrounded by the inscriptions "LEGENDARY LURES" and "JULIO T. BUEL," with "THE BUEL SPOON" below.

The obverse is adorned with sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley's effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. Inscribed "ELIZABETH II," "2 DOLLARS," "COOK ISLANDS," "2020" and "1/2 OZ AG .999."
