For each of the six designs issued in the American Western Skulls Collection, the Osborne Mint offers five different versions for collectors and investors to choose from when they buy silver. The 1 oz rounds are available in this proof option, as well as antique and colorized versions. The 5 oz rounds are available only as proof and antique options.
The United States Cavalry served a vital role in the US Army from its founding in 1775 through the end of World War II. It was perhaps never more effective though than it was during the 1800s. As the nation pushed beyond its original borders to conquer the west, cavalry lead the charge in the battles of the Indian Wars, the Mexican-American War, and further settlement of the west following the Civil War.
On the obverse of each 1 oz Proof Silver American Western Skulls Cavalryman Round is the skeletal depiction of a member of the US Cavalry. Depicted with a cavalry cap on and long swords crossed below, there are also inscriptions on this side that read “Liberty” and “2018.”
The reverse of the Proof Silver Cavalryman Round includes the design of the fried eagle. A disturbing twist on the heraldic eagle of the United States, this featherless bird sits behind the national shield as it clutches the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace in its talons.
All of the 1 oz Proof Silver American Western Skulls Cavalryman Rounds available from Silver.com arrive inside of protective plastic capsules. The individual rounds have edge-lettered serial numbers and come with a Certificate of Authenticity that matches that serial number. As proof rounds, these products have frosted, matte elements on the design features and a mirrored, clear surface.
