The 1 oz Pegasus is GoldSilver's bestselling silver round. Minted annually, the 2018 version continues our tradition offering this unique and beautiful silver round at affordable premiums.
Investors choose the 1 oz Pegasus Silver Round for its .999 fine silver content, high-quality minting, and its striking design that embodies the independence afforded those who own silver.
The inspiration for the Pegasus comes from real coins circulated in Ancient Greece thousands of years ago.
Ancient Pegasus coin from approx. 340 B.C. (for reference only).
On the front of the round, the Pegasus, the icon from Greek mythology, is pictured in flight along with the inscription "FREEDOM" and the 2018 year-date. Just as Pegasus can soar through the air, we, too, can rise above earthly burdens. This 1 oz silver round is a timeless symbol of this lesson.
The intricately designed reverse side features the phrase "Free Markets & Free People." And a lion and bull are near the center of the round as a tribute to their appearance on the first coins ever minted, dating back over 2,500 years ago in Lydia.

Unlike government issue coins, the Pegasus does not have high seigniorage costs (the difference between the value of money and the cost to produce and distribute it). This makes it a simple way to own stunningly minted silver as close to the spot price as possible.
