Just as American gunslingers hid from their shady pasts in the American West’s vast expanses, so too did some outlaws from south of the border. Mexican outlaws were often referred to as banditos, an English derivative of the Spanish term bandido. These individuals didn’t always commit crimes though.
Some Mexican Banditos were gunslingers for hire who would complete Robin Hood-type works to help the disenfranchised take back what was rightfully theirs at the barrel of a gun. Other banditos were revolutionaries who overthrew corrupt governments in Mexico.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Colorized Proof Silver American Western Skulls Mexican Bandito Round, you’ll find the colorized image of the Bandito design. This figure wears a dark grey sombrero with beautiful, floral colors for the roses and other flowers on the brim of the hat. The bandolier of bullets features brass rounds and leather straps. Both of the banditos eyes are dark red and appear to stare right through the viewer.
The reverse face of the 1 oz Colorized Proof Silver American Western Skulls Rounds bears the image of the fried eagle. This image includes the nation’s heraldic shield with a triangular cluster of 13 stars above. However, this eagle is no longer a part of the world as it has died and has none of its feathers left.
These 1 oz Colorized Proof Silver American Western Skulls Mexican Bandito Rounds feature a protective plastic packaging. All American Western Skulls Collection rounds come with a Certificate of Authenticity which reflects the same serial number found on the edge of each round.
