Hello Steemit, today is a great day as the presale for the 2019 silver STEEM round is open. The yearly silver STEEM round is a combined effort of the #steemsilvergold precious metals stacking community and this is it's 3rd year of release. The project is to aimed to provide all users of steemit with something that we think is pretty cool. Holding a silver STEEM round is a must for any hardcore steemian. They are 1oz of 99.999% pure silver (the best type) and each year we release a new design. With a low mintage of 1500 and a few hundred already gone, these will not last long as most people buy more than 1 at a time. Don't miss out on this.
2019 silver STEEM round
2019's winning coin design come from @edxserverus. The community was invited to submit coin designs which were voted on over 2 rounds and we are proud to present this years design to the community.
Silver STEEM round history
It all started with a simple but amazing idea. I still remember the day @sevinwilson shared his Idea with me. You know sometimes its the simplest things that make the most since. It was a way back in July of 2017 for some that seems long ago, but to Steemians who have been around since then it seems like just yesterday. Of course once @sevinwilson shared his idea with me, I was completely on board. It was a simple, his idea was to create a Steem Silver Round out of Silver.
Why not! It made all the sense in the world, steemit was booming and steem was sitting very nicely at $1.04. Crypto's had started performing well and the time was right. Well part of @sevinswilson idea was to let the steemit community come up with the design of the round, then take the designs and let the community vote and decide which one was going to be the winning design. Now back then it was hard to get noticed on steemit, this was right before the BOT craze started. So basically it was a little confined to the #steemsilvergold community. Infact I would be willing to say that 95% of steemians had no idea what was going to be a reality in early September. So the designs started rolling in and the voting started. One very talented Woman from the other side of the world really showed out. She goes by the steemit name of @bearone and boy did she represent Australia very well. Her design was a perfect fit for the sea of Steemians that where so hungry to grow.
From Minnow to Whale, this round said it all and was a very good fit for the 1st ever Steem Silver Round. Little did we know what was about to happen. Y'all no it by F.O.M.O and boy was it bad. Once these babies hit the market it was the hottest thing on steemit, Steem Silver Rounds where selling for $40 to $50 each and steemians where buying them as quick as the could. They were HOT!!! The Secondary market was on fire. You had SSG members that wish they had bought more. You had steemians that never even new about the round until it was already minted. In fact I would be willing to bet that we still are only at about 15% of the total steemit community members that are aware that there is a STEEM silver round.
After a few months the round had died down and crypto's where taking off. Steem was sitting nicely at $3.00 and the talks had already started about the 2018 Steem Silver Round. Bitcoin was quickly approaching its all time high and Money was being made. SBD saw a quick and fast spike and steemit seemed to be on top of the world.
It was late March and @sevinwilson was ready to kick off the 2018 Steem Silver Round design contest. 2018 designs seemed to be flowing in quick and there where some REALLY good ones. In fact voting was so good we eneded up having a second round of voting for top three designs. Just how would we follow up with @bearones design? Well on steemian hit right on the head. He goes by the steemit name of @welshstacker. His design was an excellent follow up to the 1st Steem Silver Round.
It was late June 2018 and the crypto market was suffering it was not good for the markets, steemit or the Steem Silver Round. Some member thought that this would be the last round. Steem had fallen back below $1.00 and was becoming a ghost town. Once the posting started, showing off the 2018 round interest seemed to pick up a little bit was still not anything like the 1st round in terms of secondary market sales. We started design contests a few months back and decided with community voting, that pretty much bring us to were we are today.

These are the only yearly released collocable's on steemit and the whole project is set to encourage user interaction through designs, voting, sourcing silver and finding a good mint that will pure these low mintage numbers for us at a good price. In order for us to get them at the price they are, we have to beable to pay for 1500 upfront hence the reason for the presale. This is the way we do it every year, we pay upfront and then production completes only a few weeks after all 1500 for sold.
Buying silver bullion is an excellent investment long term and should be in any serious investor's portfolio. You are encouraged to buy 5, 10 are even 20 of these as it is a proper investment and not just a happy STEEM token with no value. Each round is worth 1 oz of .999 silver and will always be with something. The community nor @raybrockman make any monies from the project and these are sold at the lowest possible prices based on our contacts.
I hope you can support the project and grab yourself a really cool steemit treat and solid investment at the same time
