Anyone know the mint that produced these silver rounds? Sorry for the poor images.

    That's unusual in that it isn't 999 fine silver.

    No clue, those up for sale are not indicating manufacturer. Is the weight correct?

    The weight is correct. Minted in the late 70s or probably in the early too mid-80s. Goes hand in hand with F. Tupper Saussy’s book a miracle on main street.

    Where are all the old timers? This was associated with a pretty big movement at the time.

    Not saying yours falls into this category but Franklin Mint produced some 90% silver and.925 also called sterling silver. Thanks

    Thanks, but it wasn’t Franklin Mint.

    Could be any after market Mint. They state 1 oz. of silver. Normally if you state 1 troy oz. this medal or medallion must have 32.24246 gr. in 900 Si. Hard to find who produce.

    No images, and I could not find any more details with a quick search, but this might be worth investigating.

    Probably a deliberate callback to coin silver.

    I started work at Coin World in 1973. Does that qualify as an old timer?

    Possibly made from melted down U.S. junk silver, which was still available in quantity at a small premium over face value. The one ounce .999 silver bar and round market had not yet developed to the point that it dominated the market. Harry Forman and the Madison Mint accomplished that throughout the 1970’s.

    Note the comma in “ONE OUNCE, SILVER” which looks like an afterthought. It’s an ounce, and it is silver, but it is not an ounce of silver.
