Each of the characters featured in the American Western Skulls Collection comes right from the reality of the era of the American Wild West, as well as novels, TV series, and feature films churned out over more than a century of American history since the close of the Wild West era. Indian Chiefs tried to keep their land with the help of Indian Braves, US Army soldiers advanced the causes of the nation’s leaders, and sheriffs fought to maintain law and order in the face of relentless outlaws.
The characters in the American Western Skulls Collection are all featured as dead skulls with design elements reflecting the life they lived. The American Western Skulls Collection Indian Brave design captures a figure with a Mohawk and two scalping knives, but the image isn’t necessarily one of violence.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Colorized Silver American Western Skulls Indian Brave Round is a vision of a brave based upon the character Magua in Last of the Mohicans. Though depicted often as violent savages, Indian Braves were actually skilled and dedicated warriors and hunters within their tribe. The scalping knives featured in this design were also used by braves to skin furs from their kills after a hunt.
All colorized rounds in the American Western Skulls Collection feature a layer of colored lacquer. This is applied only to the design element on the obverse side, with the Indian Brave skull shown in a pale yellow, with dark brown to the handles of his knives and stripes of red and brown in his long hair.
The reverse of all Colorized Silver American Western Skulls Indian Brave Rounds feature the heraldic eagle of the United States, but this bird is the fried eagle. A featherless, dead bird, it has the US national shield, the arrows of war, an olive branch of peace, and a cluster of 13 stars above its head in a triangle.
