The Legacy Collection of silver rounds from the Osborne Mint celebrates the greatest designs from American artist Frank Frazetta. His works included popular fantasy and science fiction works that featured on album covers, paperback books, posters, and countless other genres of art.
Frazetta’s Silver Warrior design originated with the paperback release of “Conan the Barbarian.” This design is widely credited with helping launch his career to a new level, intensifying the demand for his works after the book was released.
On the obverse face of each 1 oz Silver Proof Frank Frazetta Legacy Collection Silver Warrior Round is the image of the warrior. His Silver Warrior design includes an armor-clad warrior riding a sled that is pulled by a team of bears.
The reverse face of each round has a portrait of Frazetta, his full name, and birth and death years. The Seal of Authenticity from Frank Jr. Enterprises graces this face as well. Each proof version of the Legacy Collection rounds has a mirror finish; the result of striking each round up to five times.
Ohio’s Osborne Mint has roots that it can trace back to 1836. Although it has not always operated under the name Osborne Mint, the company’s consistent operation over the course of 175 years makes it America’s oldest private mint.
