Through an exclusive partnership with Guy Harvey, the front design of these silver rounds features Harvey's early masterpiece, "Hemingway's Adventure," in incredible detail. Inspired directly by Hemingway's Caribbean tale, the artwork is even more impressive in full color. The historic Morro Castle located in Havana Bay is visible in the backdrop to the left, while the "old man" Santiago attempts to reel in a giant blue marlin leaping from the water in the foreground. The boat shown actually resembles Hemingway's own vessel known as Pilar. The Guy Harvey signature appears to the right of the scene, while the outer rim is inscribed with "Guy Harvey© Established 1986" and "THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA."
Another fantastic work by Guy Harvey graces the reverse of the round. Known as "Spanish Galleon," the image shows a sunken treasure ship surrounded by an array of sea creatures. The addition of vibrant color makes this aquatic scene pop off the surface of the silver. A dazzling diversity of fish species are represented, and the galleon boasts its original color. The Guy Harvey signature is again easily recognized in the top-right corner of the design, right next the round's individual serial number (out of 1,500). Meanwhile, the weight and composition of the round are inscribed along the rim to the right, reading "One Troy Ounce .999 Fine Silver." The year-date "2017" is placed at the bottom rim.
Aside from its captivating artwork, mixing literary fantasy with the trademark realism of Guy Harvey's marine life paintings, the 2017 Guy Harvey© The Old Man and the Sea Colorized 1 oz Proof Silver Round is a full troy ounce of silver bullion. The round measures 39 mm in diameter and is 2.8 mm thick. Each round is accompanied by its own display booklet.
