The Osborne Mint continues to defy the notion that silver bars have to be boring by putting yet another beautiful design on a silver bar. This time it is the masterpiece oil painting, Cliff Houses on the Rio Mancos, Colorado by William Henry Holmes. This oil painting is recreated on a 2 troy oz .999 fine silver bar and looks absolutely gorgeous. 


Key features:

  • Made of 2 Troy ounces of .999 fine silver
  • Obverse has “Cliff Houses of the Rio Macos, Colorado”  by William Henry Holmes recreated in full color
  • Reverse has a picture of hanging wire and hardware and certificate of authenticity 


On the obverse side of this bar is a full color depiction of the popular painting, “Cillf Houses on the Rio” by artist and explorer, William Henry Holmes,  from the Smithsonian Art collection with a silver frame around it.  Here the original oil painting is rendered in vivid color on a bar that can be held in your hand. Holmes’ painting is a stunning image of pueblo houses against Colorado cliffs above the Rio Mancos. This painting was completed in 1878 and was among 2.8 million images of art released to the public through creative commons. The Osborne Mint selected some of these pieces of art, which many people maybe didn’t know existed and put them on silver bars so the buyer can hold these art pieces in their own hands. A whole new audience gets to appreciate this beautiful  painting.        


The reverse side of the bar continues the framed art theme with what looks like hanging wire and hardware. It also has a tag on the back like a painting might have with the title and artist as well as ounces and purity. This is also the certificate of authenticity. Very clever stuff. At first glance you would swear you can hang it up like a painting. 


Now is the time to get this authentic piece of art that also doubles as a 2 troy oz .999 fine silver bar. This makes quite the conversation piece and makes a great addition to any collection.
