On the obverse of the 1 oz Proof Silver American Western Skulls Gunslinger Round you’ll find the image of a rough-and-tumble Gunslinger. The design of this skull figure is said to reflect that of Clint Eastwood from the famous Spaghetti Westerns he starred in early in his career. The Gunslinger glares out at you with a cigar butt clenched between his teeth as he sizes up the competition. A pair of six-shooters are crossed below, maintaining the common obverse design element of weapons crossed below the skull similar to the old Jolly Roger pirate flag design.
The reverse of all Silver American Western Skulls Rounds feature the fried eagle design, a delightful riff on the US heraldic eagle image that features the bald eagle charred and stripped of its feathers. The proof round in this series has beautiful contrasting fields. The background is deeply-mirrored and clear, with a strong, frosted finish on the design elements.
Your 1 oz Proof Silver American Western Skulls Gunslinger Round is available inside a plastic capsule and comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. That COA features the serial number engraved on the edge of each round.
