NEW RELEASE: Sunflower 1oz .999 Silver Bar

It is not all the time that we get to introduce a new silver bullion option. While it’s something that we would often like to do, time and production specifics take a toll on our already busy schedule producing our current (and very large) selection. However, now is one of those times we get to offer a brand new silver option!

The sunflower, or biologically known as and classified as Helianthus, are primarily seen in North and South America. There are nearly 70 species of plants in the Asteraceae family for which the sunflower is found. Some of the species are grown for their large size and flower heads while others are cultivated for their seeds. The most common sunflower species is an annual herb that features brown, yellow, or purple petals. Seen in a number of ways including seed and oil yield for consumption, they are also grown for ornamental value.

Sunflowers themselves symbolize loyalty and adoration in large part due to the myth of Clytie and Apollo. In Greek mythology, Clytie (a nymph) was in love with Apollo who was the God of Sun. He also loved her in the beginning but then drew his attention to another nymph. With jealousy, Clytie would tell the other nymph’s father who would then punish his daughter by burying her alive. Apollo would become so angry that he turned Clytie into a sunflower. As her love for Apollo remained strong regardless, she would watch him move across the sky every day as sunflowers do.

The flower’s association with the sun also brings happiness and is often associated with brightening someone’s mood. In different cultures, they also represent vitality and good luck. No matter the country, the flower has a long history of bringing about positivity.
