Beautiful Toner Libertas Americana Silver Round

in steemsilvergold •  2 months ago  (edited)

It is Silverporn Saturday once again! WOW, time sure flies... I thought I just posted an article yesterday using this tag initiated by my bestie, siverd510 to showcase some or any precious metal.

When it comes to generic silver, I lean towards American iconic designs, like Lady Liberty.


I am very pleased to have added to my stack this silver round depiction of America's Lady Liberty. It is a lovely toner with both sides having an attractive patina, predominantly gold, magenta, amethyst, and azure at the margins. The tips of the devices on the reverse show light hairlines in the fields. It is one of the generic rounds that I treasure.


The silver round design was based on the Libertas Americana Silver Medal shown in the photo below.

1781 Libertas Americana Medal

The Libertas Americana in silver is much rarer than its counterpart in copper or bronze. In a letter of April 15, 1783 to Livingston, Benjamin Franklin reveals why: "I enclose one [medal] in silver for the President of Congress and one in copper for yourself. The impression on copper is thought to appear best, and you will soon receive a number for the members." Franklin continues in this vein and mentions that a silver medal had been presented to each minister in the French court. Still, between the added expense of silver and the perceived aesthetic superiority of copper, it is little surprise that few examples were struck in silver, and more than two centuries of attrition have further limited the supply.


#silverpornsaturday is a tag started by @silverd510 that is open for use to anyone who want to showcase precious metals.

All silver & gold and photos shown in this article are mine.

Thank you for viewing this article. I will see you again soon!

Hello @balticbadger! I am so happy to see you here once again!
Have I told you that I've been to Germany twice... don' ask me where... I can never pronounce the cities I visited. But I remember my side trips around Italy using USO. Yes, I had a military family host me while I was there.
Have a lovely weekend, my friend, and take care 🥰🌺🤙

It would make a impressive display of the original coins next to the silver replica rounds.
The design of replica rounds is not just for just putting some or just any design but for a variety of reasons.
My top three:
Acknowledges popular and famous coins of the past.
Repopularizes coin collecting.
Themes often emphasizing that silver is still considered as universal money all over the world.

Exactly, sis @kerrislravenhill. My tendencies towards three designs: The Statue of Liberty, The American Prospector, the Indian Head & American Buffalo are all based on three commemorative coins which are 1986 Liberty Silver Dollar, the 1925 California Commemorative Half Dollar and the 2001 Commemorative Buffalo Silver Dollar respectively. I am always seeking out "trade unit" because of your last statement.
You must truly be my stacking sis.. you summarized my motivations for choosing specific designs of generic silver when I want to add weight to my stack in addition to my stack foundation of ASE and US Constitutional Silver.
BTW, I love those orange shoes and bag, hehehe! Luv ya sis, and I always wish you the best in everything. Enjoy your "weekend" to come, take care 🥰🌺🤙 and a million Hugs and Kisses 🤗💕💋!!!!

The rainbow tone oh yes!!!😀
I used to stick to collecting Morgans, and to find one with a beautiful rainbow tone .....Nice!!
I can't tell, is this round in a flip, or a sealed plastic holder??
Just wondering if the tone will stabilize??
Beautiful!😀

It is in a flip, and I just transferred it to a capsule. BTW, if you come across the Libertas Americana on any generic silver where you are, and you are not interested in getting it for yourself, please holler!!!Enjoy the rest of the weekend, my friend @silvertop, and take care. 🥰🌺🤙

I will keep a look out @silversaver888, my LCS is also a jewelry store.
Last night me and the Mrs went down there looking for “Santa”.😊🤗
They had an invite only jewelry show going on and all Silver and Gold was put away...😲🤔
We had to tell him what we were looking for, he then left the private room and came back in with several trays of Silver.
We know the owner well, but it felt like a back room private clandestine “deal” LOL!👀😳😁
