From the 1650s to the 1730s, the world lived through what was known as the Golden Age of Piracy. Empires around the world were expanding across oceans with the power of ever-larger sailing vessels extending the reach of nations by thousands of miles. However, sailing ships could never be everywhere at once, and pirates often stepped into the void to prey on merchant vessels. Among the most successful pirates of this era was a Welshman known as Bartholomew Roberts. Today, 2020 1 oz Silver Tuvalu Black Flag The Royal Fortune Coins are available to you online at Silver.com.
