Working alongside Canada’s only hand-poured silver company, CCN has launched the third limited-edition silver rounder in an ongoing series that began three years ago with Canada’s sesquicentennial. This year, CCN and John Masterson – an Ontario collector and the owner of Beaver Bullion – are marking the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, which began with the launch of the Saturn V rocket on today’s date in 1969. Tying in with the space theme, the rounder is struck with an antique finish to give it an appropriately dull appearance.“Because it’s the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, we wanted to make the rounders look like little moons,” said Masterson, who added the first two pieces in the series are “shinier” than the new rounder, which called for “blackness and darkness” in its design.
“If you photograph them all in a pile, it looks like a pile of rocks.”
This third piece – like the previous two – has a mintage of only 150.
Each piece is struck in .999 silver; weighs at least one troy ounce (31.1035 grams); and has a diameter of about 31.75 millimetres. Includes shipping.
Each of the 150 one-ounce silver rounders is individually numbered. The rounders has already been offered to individuals who purchased the previous rounders so they can receive the matching serial number. If you have purchased previous rounders and missed placing your preorder, please us immediately and provide your name, address, phone number and the mintage number (s) of the previoius rounder (s) ordered. During regular weekday business hours, we can be reached at 800-408-0352, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
