Image Engelhard Prospector Silver Rounds: Description and Design
Engelhard Prospector Silver Round The Engelhard Prospector Silver Round is not only one of the most recognized rounds for silver investors, it is one of the most highly valued. The Engelhard Corporation (Wikipedia: Engelhard) was founded at the turn of the century and is considered to be one of the classic mints. Engelhard was sold in 1986 and this ended their production of gold and silver products. The market places a higher premium on Engelhard silver because of their history, as well as their reputation for producing high quality, private mint products.

There is more than one Prospector design, with variations between mintage dates, so these rounds almost work like coins for collectors. The obverse of this Prospector features a prospector panning for gold with the words “The American Prospector” inscribed along the bottom, as well as an inscription for the year in which the round was produced. The reverse, depending on the year, may depict a flying American Eagle with an olive branch and banner in its talons, or the Engelhard logo, along with inscriptions for, weight (1 troy ounce) and purity (Fine .999 Silver).
