The Privateer Series of 2 oz ultra-high-relief silver rounds from Elemetal Mint celebrates the pirate life. The first two rounds released in the series in 2015 featured images of a pirates ship and a pirate’s ship as it sailed perilously close to the dreaded Siren. This latest release features the first image of a pirate.
Each of these Elemetal 2 oz Silver Privateer The Captain Ultra High Relief Rounds features a 3D look and feel to the primary design fields. Elemetal Mint achieves this visual appearance by striking each silver blank multiple times under immense pressure.
The reverse face of each round bears the image of a bearded, bedraggled pirate known as The Captain. Standing on a deserted island, he is depicted with a sword in one hand and his pirate booty in the other. The chest at his feet is the ultimate resting place for his treasure, where it will remain until he or someone else comes to collect.
On the obverse you’ll find the common design theme of all Privateer Series rounds. Invoking images of the Jolly Roger, it features a skull set on a ship’s wheel as the primary design feature. The motto “No Prey, No Pay” is engraved above, with the round’s weight, metal content, and purity engraved below.
Elemetal Mint was formed years ago as a collaborative effort by NTR Metal, Provident Metals, and Ohio Precious Metals. As of July 2015, OPM has rebranded itself as the primary minting facility for the group, taking on the name Elemetal Mint.
