|Coin||Silver Ounce 2020 Scottsdale Reserve|
In the United States, a significant number of private mints produce bullion which is not legal tender and is targeted at investors and not at coin collectors - such as this one.
This one-ounce pure silver bullion round was issued by the Scottsdale Mint in 2020.
The Mint says about it:
The proof-like 2020 1 oz Reserve silver round incorporates new technology with a beautiful modern contemporary design. These rounds feature latent imagery embedded into both the obverse and reverse of the round, providing a unique look when the round is rotated along multiple axes. Depending on the angles the Lion Logo and 2020 completely disappear on the front and the same with the words Reserve and Scottsdale on the reverse. Besides looking amazing, the imagery adds visible security to the rounds.
At the centre of the obverse, a large letter R enclosed in a square, below which RESERVE.
The background of the central circle has a background of thin vertical lines with two latent images: vertically on the left, the date of issue 2020, and on the right - the Scottsdale Lion hallmark. These are visible under some angles of view and hidden under others.
Around above in the rim, the precious metal content: 1 TROY OZ .999 FINE SILVER. Around below, SCOTTSDALE MINT.

In the upper left part of the reverse, the Scottsdale Mint's Lion hallmark, from which eleven serrated rays radiate out. These carry latent images visible only from a certain angle of view, SCOTTSDALE RESERVE (one word per ray, repeated).
Packaging: in tubes of 20.
