During the American Revolution, the spirit of defiance, resilience, and readiness that still defines the nation to this day was born. As the first regiment of Continental Marines was mustered to join the newly-formed Continental Navy on its first-ever mission, the image of a coiled rattlesnake ready to strike was born in a simple painting on the drums of the Marines.

With news in 1775 that a Royal Navy fleet was sailing for America with supplies for the British Royal Army, George Washington and the Second Continental Congress authorized the creation of the Continental Navy to attempt to intercept the cargo to supply the raw forces of the Continental Army. To support the Continental Navy, Congress also authorized mustering up five companies of Continental Marines. When these Marines enlisted and arrived in Philadelphia, they marched in with yellow drums emblazoned with a coiled rattlesnake that would go on to be known as the Gadsden snake on the Gadsden Flag.

On the obverse field of Silver D’Anconia Don’t Tread on America Bars, you will find the identifying hallmarks of the bars along with the Gadsden snake. The snake is coiled and ready to strike as it lies in a patch of grass. The manufacturer’s name is above, with the weight, purity, and metal content below. The design has an altered motto of DON’T TREAD ON AMERICA. The bottom of the bar has an individual serial number.
