There are multiple variations of this color as well as different names as follows:

Tiger in Silver Finish: Black back, black face, black tail, transparent body with silver flash insert.
Sonic in Silver Fish: Silver body with black lightning bolt and red gill mark on either side, red face. This is a cataloged color for the Sonic starting in 1957.

Vibra Sonics in Silver Finish: In 1964, Heddon produced the Vibra Sonic line of lures which has a reflector- like plate on either side of the lure. It was embossed with a design that ranged from a hexagonal to a scale like pattern and in some cases, little of any pattern. The following year, 1965, it came with glitter on the sides and remained that way until the end of production in 1970.
