On the obverse of 2020 Proof Silver American Revolution Battle of Alamance Coins is a depiction of militia members lined up with muskets lowered and ready to fire. While the colonial forces under Royal Governor William Tryon fought with traditional warfare tactics of the day, the Regulators of western North Carolina fought in a style more akin to the indigenous tribes of America. The Regulators attacked from the woods, hiding behind trees while reloading.
The reverse side of the 2021 1 oz Proof Silver Battle of Alamance Coins comes with a Liberty Tree design. An elm tree, the Liberty Tree was believed to have sprouted in what is now Boston Common in 1646 and was a popular gathering place for American Colonists as resistance to British rule began to grow.
