Engelhard Prospector Silver Round
Description: The Engelhard Prospector Silver Round, minted and issued by the Engelhard Company (refinery) between 1982 and 1987, is probably the most famous and popular 1 oz silver round available in the secondary silver market today. Interestingly the obverse of the Engelhard Prospector features an image of a prospector panning for gold. It must be for gold, since it’s after all no secret that silver is not found in alluvial deposits. The reverse of the Engelhard Prospector features different designs depending on the year of mintage.
