All of the 5 oz Antique Silver American Western Skulls Old Sheriff Rounds listed here arrive in a protective capsule and ship with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

The antique polish applied to your Old Sheriff Round is designed to help highlight the intricate details in the design elements of both the Old Sheriff on the obverse and the fried eagle on the reverse. The polish has the added benefit of lending the visual aspects of an ancient coin to this collectible round.
Sheriffs were elected by the citizens of counties to serve above town marshals in keeping the public safe, while also working with federal US Marshals, who were appointed by the government. Some states gave their county sheriffs extraordinary powers, like New Mexico extending a county sheriff’s jurisdiction to any county in the state in the pursuit of justice.
The obverse of the 5 oz Antique Silver American Western Skulls Old Sheriff Round features the image of the Old Sheriff. He is depicted wearing a cowboy hat that has his badge in the center. That badge was issued by Tombstone, Arizona Territory. Engravings include “Liberty” and “2018.”
On the reverse of the silver rounds in the Silver American Western Skulls Round collection include the same design. This twist on the heraldic eagle shows all the design elements found on the design popular on the Silver American Eagle, but the bird itself is just a skeletal figure on this round design. “United States of America” is engraved above, with the weight, purity, and metal content below.
