The Professional Numismatist Guild’s Accredited Precious Metals Dealers program (www.APMDdealers.org) has created special one-ounce .999 fine silver bullion rounds.
Participating PNG-APMD dealers will be selling the rounds to collectors and investors at competitive prices lower than some other one-ounce silver bullion products on the market.
"These handsome rounds with a proof-like luster are slightly larger than U.S. Morgan and Peace silver dollars," explained PNG President Barry Stuppler.
"They were professionally created as a way for the public to advantageously invest in a premium precious metals product guaranteed for weight and silver fineness purity, and to emphasize the importance of doing business with knowledgeable, reputable dealers."
PNG-APMD members must adhere to a strict Code of Ethics (https://apmddealers.org/apmd-code-of-ethics/) in the buying and selling bullion and numismatic precious metals items.
Participating Platinum Level APMD members (https://apmddealers.org/apmd-dealers/) will sell the silver rounds. Groups of 20 are packaged in a protective, inert plastic tubes that include a tamper-evident PNG-APMD seal.
"They will be offered to the public at prices that are only a small fraction over their intrinsic silver value," said PNG Executive Director Robert Brueggeman.
The rounds measure 39 millimeters in diameter. They were custom made by the Highland Mint of Melbourne, Florida with an "HM" mintmark.
The obverse depicts a spread-wings eagle on a rock with the legends, "APMD" near the top and "ONE TROY OUNCE .999 FINE SILVER" near the bottom.
The reverse legend around the design reads "ACCREDITED PRECIOUS METALS DEALERS/KNOWLEDGE INTEGRITY RESPONSIBILITY."
The center design is the APMD logo depicting an image of Aequitas, the Roman goddess of honest merchants and fair trade, a cornucopia and the words "GUARANTEED BY APMD ACCREDITED PRECIOUS METALS DEALERS/PNG SINCE 1955."
