This World Trade Silver Art Round minted at the American Argent Mint contains one troy ounce of .999 pure silver. Silver art rounds are valuable and promising additions to any collection for their aesthetic appeal and fine silver content.
Due to the rising cost of raw silver in 1964 the US mint stopped production on all silver coins leaving the market open to new silver products. The Foster Company led this movement in 1969, with many private companies, like American Argent Mint, following its example, minting collectible silver art rounds, art bars, and medals.
The obverse bears an image indicative of the American Seal: a shield patterned with three stars and dark and white stripes; a reflection of the shield that guards the patriotic eagle on U.S coinage. A banner with the official motto of the United States "In God We Trust" titles the shield. Also inscribed is "World Trade Silver" to the top of the round while the bottom rim reads "One Troy Ounce".
The reverse carries the Scale of Justice with the legend "One Troy Ounce" inscribed below the scale. Along the rim reads "American Argent Mint Ltd." and "999 Fine Silver".
