History of the Truth Coin Series
First released in 2018, SD Bullion launched the exclusive Roaring Lion and Tree of Life Silver Coins, which showcased exquisite designs released with limited mintages. Introduced as the most affordable Silver Coin in the world, our customers responded in a major way.
Following The Tree of Life and the Roaring Lion's huge popularity in 2018, SD Bullion decided to offer the Truth Coin Series. The micro-graved 'Truth' on the coins changes every year, with each year having its own unique scripture featured on the coin. The Roaring Lion is released earlier in the year compared to the Tree of Life and features the first half the Truth with the Tree of Life featuring the second half of the Truth. In addition, the coins of the Truth Coin Series contain high-level features that protect against the production of counterfeits.
The Truth Coin Series is struck at the prestigious Sunshine Mint, a world-class private mint located in the United States that earned its stellar reputation by working with the most respected world mints across the globe. This mint, which is involved in the supply chain for the most popular coins such as Silver Eagles, Maples, Britannias, and Krugerrands, strikes these incredible Roaring Lion coins. The Roaring Lion coin is of the highest quality and is available to you at an extremely affordable premium over the silver spot price!
Each year, we plan to launch a bullion limited mintage Roaring Lion and Tree of Life Silver Coin. With every addition to the series, a new Truth will be revealed. The Roaring Lion will be engraved with part of the Truth and The Tree of Life will be engraved with the second half of the Truth.
What has made this coin series so popular? Simply put, these coins boast beautiful designs, mintage numbers far below comparable bullion silver coins (ensuring their collectible value long-term), and a ridiculously affordable premium when launched.
In 2019, we decided to release the first-ever High Relief version of our popular Truth Coin Series in five ounces of .9999 silver to add to our line of Truth Silver Coins.
We only minted 1,000 coins each of the 5 oz Tree of Life and 5 oz Roaring Lion silver coins with a detailed and beautiful High Relief Strike. We did not expect the 5 oz coins to stay in stock very long and that proved to be the case with and popularity of the program as a whole; our experience has taught us that the collectibility of this series should appreciate over time.
A collector-favorite feature, the 5 oz Truth Series coins are individually numbered 1-1,000. You will be able to find the unique number of your coin (struck sequentially and hand-engraved) on the edge of the coin.
In 2020, the Roaring Lion’s obverse was re-designed. The 2018 and 2019 Roaring Lion Silver Coins featured the full body of a lion mid-roar. The 2020 Roaring Lion Coin features a gorgeous rendition of a lion’s head wearing a crown. The lion’s face is minted in great detail with the individual whiskers on its face even being distinguishable.
SD Bullion thanks our customers for making the Truth Series incredibly popular. Stay tuned for more beautiful coin releases from the series coming soon!
