The Engelhard rounds are some of the most popular on the silver market today. The design on these coins has made them stand apart from many other types of coins that are out today. On the obverse side of the coin is a hard-working prospector, hearkening back to the tradition of men and women toiling for a chance at a better life. It is stamped with the phrase “The American Prospector” as well as the year in which they were minted, between 1982 and 1987. Since they are no longer minted, these coins have become more rare, but remain a very noticeable and striking silver coin.
Each coin has .999 silver purity with a Troy content of 1 ounce. They have a 2.9mm thickness as well as a 39.8 mm diameter, a hearty coin. Since they can be packed so well and have the benefit of being so valuable due to their silver content, these are great coins for people new to investing as well as established individuals.
