Gainesville Coins, one of the nation’s largest online distributors of precious metals, is offering The Guy Harvey Collection Series, an offering of limited edition silver rounds and bars featuring marine wildlife designs created by the celebrated artist.
Harvey whose distinctive artwork for the last quarter century has won a legion of fans and customers in North America, The Caribbean and beyond, brings his iconic designs to those looking for a collectible, gift or an investment, according to Gainesville Coins President Joe Yaffe.
“When we began the process of reviewing options to create a series for collectors interested in fishing, there was one name that stood out above all the rest—Guy Harvey,” said Yaffe. “We decided to go with Guy’s majestic leaping Blue Marlin design with fleeing Dorados (Dolphinfish) for the rounds and his famous Santiago’s Finest Hour depiction for our silver bar.”
The series, available online at Gainesville Coins’ website, marks the first time ever Guy Harvey original art has been featured on silver rounds and bars.
Available are silver and copper bullion rounds, silver proof and colorized rounds and 10 oz silver bars.
“The silver bars, each .999 fine silver, are primarily valued for their fine metal content, but the incredible depth of their original Guy Harvey artwork makes them worth showing off or displaying for company,” said Yaffe.
Yaffe said the 1 oz silver bullion rounds total 1 troy ounce of fine silver content and are 99.9% pure silver. The copper bullion rounds are .999 fine copper. Both are sold based on their underlying precious metal content plus a small premium. For a more limited edition round collectible purchase, Yaffe said a silver proof and a colorized version is also available.
“We are extremely excited over the launch of this new limited edition precious metals program and to be partnering with Gainesville Coin,” said Guy Harvey president & CEO Steve Stock. “They have done a great job of reproducing Guy’s artwork in silver and copper and in the process, created a unique collectible series for Guy Harvey fans and investors”.
