Silver is seen as a haven to hedge investments against inflation. It is used in a variety of industrial products which affects its worth and outlook. It is cheaper than gold but is thinly traded which makes it more volatile and liquid. Depending on your investment goals, silver may be the right fit for you.
On the obverse is a simplified image of the Aztec Sun Calendar. This calendar is a simplified version of the rather complex one the Aztecs used. This calendar was unique in that it not only told the day of the year but the kind of day it was going to be. It even foretold famines and droughts with remarkable accuracy. This same calendar caused quite a stir in our time period in that it ran out in 2012. Some surmised that the reason it ran out is that the world would be ending that year. Luckily, they were wrong.
The reverse side has the MKMarz Mint Mark with its skull and crossbones in the middle with a stylized pattern around it. At the top edge is ‘.999 SILVER’. At the bottom edge is ‘ONE OZT’.
