The 5 oz Colorized Proof Silver American Western Skulls Rounds are the latest addition to this program. Launched in 2017, the collection initially featured three options in the 1 oz silver version and two options in the 5 oz silver. The addition of 5 oz Colorized Proofs brings balance to options in both weights.
On the obverse of the 5 oz Colorized Proof American Western Skulls Gunslinger Round is the image of a Wild West gunslinger. Inspired by the characters portrayed by Clint Eastwood on the big screen, this gunslinger gazes at you from under his hat with a wry smile, one eye sizing you up for the draw, and a cigar butt in his mouth.
The inspiration for this design comes not just from one of Eastwood’s characters, but from various roles he played in Spaghetti Western flicks. Though it bears a resemblance to his character from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, Eastwood was the perfect Wild West gunslinger and appeared in other films such as The Outlaw Josey Wales.
American Western Skulls Collection rounds have a shared reverse design known as the fried eagle. This vision of the heraldic eagle of the United States includes an eagle with no feathers behind the US national shield.
