Each of these 3 oz MK Barz Silver Hand Poured Walk the Plank Bars brings to mind the inevitable death that one would face when forced to walk the plank. It would seem to be a given that a pirate such as Blackbeard would have made more than on individual walk the plank during his reign of terror.
However, most pirates would rarely make an individual captive walk the plank. Captives were more valuable alive than dead, and the punishment of walking the plank was often reserved for mutinous members of the crew who had little value once they turned on their captain. At the very least, an example had to be made of such individuals.
On the obverse of each of these silver bars you’ll find the design of a human skull crossed in the back by a pair of human bones. This image became synonymous with pirate lore, and was adopted on a black flag with the skull-and-crossbones design in white. Known as the Jolly Roger, the site of this flag on the horizon meant certain doom for merchant ships.
The reverse side of the 3 oz MK Barz Silver Hand Poured Walk the Plank Bars includes a flat surface with a matte finish. Engravings on this face include the name of the mint, purity of the bar, “Limited Edition,” the unique serial number of each, and the weight of the bars.
