One way or another, the skull and crossbones is a symbol of death.

Silver squares are a unique and distinctive option for those buying silver who want to avoid coins and bars. Squares are a combination of silver bars and silver rounds. A silver square has the physical appearance that most closely resembles a rectangular bar, but it also has the typical size and appearance of a silver round. The biggest difference, of course, being that it isn’t round.
On the obverse side of these 1 oz Silver Atlantis Skull and Crossbones Hand-Poured Squares is the Atlantis Mint’s most popular design. Here, you’ll find the most common depiction of the skull and crossbones, that which depicts a human skull with two long bones that cross behind the skull near the jawbones.
The skull and crossbones image dates to the Late Middle Ages and has filled many roles since that time. It has famously been used by pirates and military units on their flags as a symbol of their ferocious nature in battle, and even their tendency toward devious behavior and lack of moral standing in the treatment of enemy combatants. In the modern age, it is most commonly associated with poisonous chemicals as a warning label that transcends written languages in its universality.
