The Frank Frazetta Legacy Collection of silver rounds currently features two different designs. In the first design, his iconic Death Dealer painting is featured on rounds that were available in 1 oz. proof and antique finishes, as well as a 5 oz proof. The Silver Warrior Round is also available in 1 oz. proof and antique, as well as this 5 oz. Silver Proof Frank Frazetta Legacy Collection Silver Warrior.
His Silver Warrior design was created for the cover of the paperback version of the fantasy story “Conan the Barbarian.” Following the book’s release, Frank’s popularity skyrocketed and demand for his work was immense.
On the obverse face of the 5 oz Silver Proof Frank Frazetta Legacy Collection Silver Warrior Round you’ll see the image of his original Silver Warrior, clad in armor and riding on a sled pulled by a team of bears.
The reverse features a humble portrait of Frank Frazetta, along with engravings of his name, year of birth, and year of death. His son Frank Jr. oversaw the design and creation of these rounds, working with Italian sculptor Luigi Badia to bring his father’s works back to life on a series of silver rounds.
Osborne Mint in Cincinnati, Ohio strikes all of the rounds in this series using a hand-fed, manual striking process that results in a brilliant mirror finish to each of the proof rounds. Founded in 1836, Osborne is America’s oldest private mint facility.
