The American West is an oft-romanticized time in the nation’s history. While most think of the Old West as encompassing the period of time that stretched from the end of the Civil War to the admission of Arizona and New Mexico as states in 1912, the Wild West’s expansion started much sooner. America’s frontier was first explored by settlers as Europeans and Americans moved westward over the Appalachians to settle the lands between the mountain range and the Mississippi River.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Proof Silver American Western Skulls Indian Chief Round you’ll find the front-facing effigy of an Indian Chief. The skeleton’s face wears a full warrior’s headdress on its head, and there are two tomahawks crossed below the design. Despite its skeletal appearance, the skull has haunting eyes set in its face that stare right back at you. Engravings are featured on this side of “Liberty” and “2017.”
The reverse of all American Western Skulls Indian Chief Rounds includes a unique twist on the heraldic eagle of the United States. Known as the fried eagle, this design features a bald eagle skeleton without its feathers. It is set behind the heraldic shield of the US, with 13 stars above its figure and the engravings of “United States of America” above and “One Troy ounce .999 Fine Silver” below.
