Gift Idea: Real Silver Treasure for Your Kids
Looking for that perfect gift for your kid’s birthday? Instead of buying plastic crap that’s made in China, how about getting a treasure chest full of real silver coins! I usually put a silver coin in the kids’ Christmas stockings, and sometimes I use silver coins as a part of the gift wrapping for special birthday presents. On the next special occasion, however, I’m giving the kids a treasure chest full of real silver that I just found at BGASC.
This miniature treasure chest is filled with 100 1-gram Silver Salmon Rounds by Monarch Precious Metals for a total of 100 grams. Not only is it a fun way to teach the kids about sound money, it’s also a convenient way to stock up on silver in a compact storage box. The small wooden pirate chest contains 100 1-gram rounds with plenty of room to spare for even more loot! The small metal swivel latch will keep your treasure chest fastened shut when not in use.
The unique 1 gram Silver Salmon Round is a fractional silver round, skillfully made by hand by the Monarch Mint. Sheets of .999 fine silver are hand rolled, blanks are individually cut by hand, and the design is hand stamped on the obverse (front) and reverse (back). Because they are made by hand, no two rounds are exactly alike. Imagining the labor involved to produce large quantities of these fractional silver rounds makes us appreciate them even more.
The obverse (front) of the round reads “Monarch Precious Metals” with the signature MPM crown logo. The reverse (back) is marked “One Gram, .999 Fine Silver” and features a Pacific Northwest salmon in honor of MPM’s home state of Oregon, USA.
