In 1973, Frank Frazetta created the Death Dealer image as a work of fantasy art. The image was then used on the cover of Molly Hatchet’s first album in 1978. The same image has been the inspiration for a variety of other warrior paintings, as well as being featured on novels and comic books. There are even statues made in this painting’s likeness. The U.S. Army’s III Corp uses the Death Dealer as its mascot.
On the obverse of each of these copper rounds, you will see the image of the Death Dealer as he sits atop his equally scary steed. The Death Dealer sits in full armor, including a horned helmet, holding a bloody ax above his head.
The reverse of each 1 oz Copper Frank Frazetta Legacy Collection Death Dealer Round features a portrait of Frazetta himself. Also included on this side of the round, you will see Frazetta’s dates of birth and death, as well as the seal of Frazetta Enterprises, which authenticates the artwork.
All of these rounds are created using the same designs that Osborne Precious Metals used on the silver rounds. While the silver rounds were available in a variety of weights and finishes, there is only a 1 oz variety available in the copper rounds.
Osborne Precious Metals is the oldest private minting facility in the United States. The original company was started in the 1830s, which is before the United States had a sovereign currency in place. Now, the facility is located in Cincinnati, Ohio.
