The Wild West might be a time captured in rare photographs of black and white, but the obverse of the 1 oz Colorized Proof Silver American Western Skulls Old Sheriff Round brings a piece of the Wild West to live in vivid color. The skull of the sheriff has the typical white-yellow hue of human bones, with a blue hat on the sheriff, and the wooden stocks of the rifles below in a natural hue of brown.
On the reverse of the Silver American Western Skulls Rounds you’ll find the design known as the fried eagle. A twist on the heraldic eagle of the United States, this bird is nothing but a skeletal form behind the heraldic shield. It still clutches the arrows of war in one talon and the olive branch of peace in the other.
Osborne Mint is America’s oldest private mint. The modern minting company traces its roots back to 1836 when Andrew Jackson was President of the United States, and there was no singular fiat currency accepted in the United States.
