Asahi Refining is out with a new silver round design that is sourced and made in the United States, and fitting it features two of the most iconic symbols of American freedom. The new Asahi Freedom Liberty Round features distinctive images of the Statue of Liberty and the American bald eagle. Right now, 1 oz Asahi Freedom Liberty Silver Rounds are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.
Asahi Refining acquired the operational facilities of Johnson Matthey in the United States and Canada in early 2016. Asahi has moved quickly to build a reputation for itself among North American numismatists and investors by continuing operations at the former Johnson Matthey facilities. Of particular note, Asahi strives to produce silver bars and silver rounds that are not only produced in the United States of America, but that also use silver sourced from within the United States.
On the obverse of 1 oz Asahi Freedom Liberty Silver Rounds, you will find an image of the Statue of Liberty. Asahi has done a brilliant job using negative space to add unique depth and visual appeal to its depiction of Liberty. The viewpoint offered in the design comes from the base of the statue looking up toward the iconic Lady Liberty as she holds up her torch as a beacon of hope and light to the rest of the world.
The reverse field of the 1 oz Asahi Freedom Liberty Silver Round depicts the powerful bald eagle. The largest bird of prey in North America, the bald eagle was selected by the Founding Fathers of America as the national emblem of the new country back in 1792. The Founding Fathers prized the bird for its power, majesty, and longevity, all characteristics they hoped would be embodied in the new democracy Americans had just established. In this design, the bald eagle soars into view with its wings flexed open at its back and its talons reaching out front of its body, almost as if it is on the attack to swiftly capture its prey.
