The Silverbug coin collection was created through several design contests and community discussions through the Reddit Silverbugs forum. Although it took quite a long time for the Ariana coin (the very first Silverbugs design contest winner) to see the light of day, she was quickly adopted by the community, spawning several additions to the collection since then.

July 2015 – Introduced in May 2014, the original Ariana Silverbug Fairy came to life as the result of a community discussion and design competition on the Reddit SilverBugs forum. Ariana was minted in celebration of the community welcoming its 5,000th member.

Now, merely two years later, the SilverBugs community has doubled in size, recently passing the ten-thousandth ‘Bug mark. In celebration of this achievement, Ariana makes a limited engagement return – in solid 925 silver statue form – virtually popping off the original coin!

With the 3D digital art created by award-winning sculptor Caleb Nefzen, the Ariana solid silver statue is limited to only 1,000 units. Each statue contains more than FIVE Troy ounces of solid silver, and the base of each is laser-engraved with the actual weight in grams, along with the production serial number and silver purity. Each silver statue comes in a box and includes a fun illustrated story of Ariana’s actual origins and certificate of authenticity.

Silverbugs #4 – Alyx

June 2016 – The 4th fairy in the SilverBug Fairy Collection, Alyx is a provocative manifestation of the current silver climate, chained down by market manipulators and paper pushers. Featuring a community-developed concept and original art by legendary science fiction & fantasy artist Steve Ferris, Alyx’s mischievous expression clearly communicates that she won’t be held down for long – and a breakout could happen at any moment.

The reverse features the forum’s award-winning scarab bug design with a new twist; for 2016, the scarab is now hand-carved, adding beautiful relief and dimension to the popular design.

Available in four distinct versions, Alyx the Silverbug is minted in 1oz silver proof (10,000 coins), 1oz silver antique (2,500 coins), 5oz silver proof (1,000 coins), and an extremely limited 5oz silver reverse proof.
