One of the newest design concepts to make its way to silver bullion coinage is chibi artwork. A form of caricature artwork, chibi art is not only increasingly popular on coins, but it is being paired with the use of shaped silver blanks to create unique collectible pieces. JM Bullion now has an expanding collection of Chibi Silver Coins for you to purchase.
Chibi is a slang term in Japanese that refers to a particular type of caricature artwork. When the term chibi is applied to caricature artwork, it refers to designs that capture animal and human forms with short, stubby bodies and limbs, with oversized heads. In the case of Chibi Silver Coins, these caricatures are depicted with full colorization on silver coins that are struck on special, shaped blanks. Each silver coin has a unique form as it takes the shape of a particular character. So, what type of Chibi Silver Coins are available from JM Bullion?
