As America pushed its borders to the west following the Revolutionary War, a mounted force within the US Army was required to help protect caravans, react swiftly to danger, and cover vast expanses of open land in less time than foot soldiers. The Cavalryman was a staple of the 19th century US Army, and today it features in the American Western Skulls Collection. Right now, 1 oz Antique Silver American Western Skulls Cavalryman Rounds are available to purchase online at Silver.com.

The Antique Silver Cavalryman Round from the American Western Skulls Collection has an antique polish applied. This polish creates an heirloom-quality finish to the round itself and helps to highlight some of the more intricate details in the design elements. Further, the antique polish is a perfect addition to these Wild West-themed rounds because it gives them the look of the era represented in the designs.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Antique Silver American Western Skulls Cavalryman Round, you’ll find the image of a one-eyed cavalryman. The literal workhorses of the US Army on the frontier, cavalryman were responsible for protecting caravans moving westward, guarding far-flung Army outposts, and ensuring a communication lifeline through written correspondence transported on horseback from town to town and outpost to outpost.
The reverse of the Antique Silver Cavalryman Round includes the heraldic eagle of the United States. This design features the constellation of 13 stars above the eagle’s head, arrows in one talon, and an olive branch in the other. Set behind the national shield in this “fried eagle” design, however, is a featherless bird.
