Sunshine Mint embarks upon a voyage through time, casting the spotlight on Mercury, the fleet-footed Roman deity synonymous with swift tidings and adventurous escapades. This fresh assembly encapsulates Mercury’s essence in a pantheon of precious metals: glistening gold, resplendent silver, and a distinguished silver medallion. A crown jewel of this collection is the refined 10 oz silver bar.
Mercury, however, is not merely a divine courier in Roman chronicles. He also stands as a guardian for the enigmatic realm of tricksters and highwaymen, offering his benevolent shield to those skilled in the clandestine arts.
Every 10 oz Mercury Commemorative Silver Bar is infused with the cutting-edge MintMark SI technology. On its reverse, a noble Sunshine Eagle is etched, its form intertwined with the MintMark SI mark — a testament to unmatched purity and authenticity. For connoisseurs eager to decipher the bar’s hidden genuineness, the exclusive Sunshine Mint Decoder Lens (available separately) is the instrument of choice. To safeguard its impeccable sheen, each bar is encased in a robust protective plastic.
The bar’s obverse is a canvas for Mercury’s dynamism. His countenance, sculpted in profile, exudes purpose and zeal. The legendary winged helmet rests atop his head, and the caduceus, an emblem of commerce, voyages, and diplomacy, finds a home in his grip. This rendition, a nod to Mercury’s multifaceted roles, reverberates with tales of messages, wanderings, and ancient commerce.
On the reverse, the SMI crest reigns supreme, gracefully elevated. This space also bears the bar’s unique serial, its defining seals, and the affirmation of its composition. Concluding the bar’s artistry, the grand eagle, symbolic of strength and vigilance, rests majestically at its base.
