Special one-ounce .999 fine silver bullion rounds have been made available through PNG’s Accredited Precious Metals Dealers program. Collectors and investors will get a chance to buy these coins through the participating PNG-APMD dealers, at prices less than some other one-ounce silver bullion products.
The coins come with a proof-like luster and are a bit bigger than U.S. Morgan and Peace silver dollars. People can now invest in these coins which are guaranteed for weight and silver fineness purity. The program highlights the importance of doing transactions with knowledgeable and reputable dealers. A strict Code of Ethics needs to be followed by PNG-APMD members to buy and sell of numismatic precious metals objects.
Available from participating Platinum Level APMD members, these rounds will be sold in sets of 20. They will be packaged in inert plastic tubes with a tamper-evident PNG-APMD seal.
The rounds with a diameter of 39 millimeters were custom made by the Highland Mint of Melbourne. The obverse features an eagle with its wings spread, on a rock. Other inscriptions include “APMD”, “ONE TROY OUNCE .999 FINE SILVER”. The inscription on the reverse reads “ACCREDITED PRECIOUS METALS DEALERS/KNOWLEDGE INTEGRITY RESPONSIBILITY.” The APMD logo is featured at the centre with an image of Aequitas, the Roman goddess of honest merchants and fair trade, a cornucopia and the text “GUARANTEED BY APMD ACCREDITED PRECIOUS METALS DEALERS/PNG SINCE 1955.”
