The Wild West was an era of American expansion that saw law enforcement struggle to protect American and European settlers moving from the established states of the Eastern seaboard to the mountains, plains, deserts, and coastal regions of the West Coast.

The sheriff was often the first line of defense for many American citizens and European settlers moving into the American West. The US Army had established outposts throughout the region, but federal troops were busy securing these outposts and battling indigenous tribes throughout the American West.
All of the 5 oz Colorized Proof Silver American Western Skulls Sheriff Rounds in this listing are shipped to you housed within protective capsules. The rounds all have their own, unique serial number engraved on the edges and that same number is reflected on the Certificate of Authenticity included with purchase today.
The system of law enforcement in the American West flowed much like it does today from local to county, state, and federal levels. Sheriffs were the highest elected officials in a county and responsible for protecting the citizens of the entire county, while US Marshals enforced federal laws and local marshals handled the protection of particular cities.
On the obverse of the 5 oz Colorized Proof Silver American Western Skulls Sheriff Round is the image of a sheriff with one of the favored weapons of law enforcement during this era. The sheriff’s cowboy hat includes a badge that reads “Tombstone, Arizona Territory” and comes with a pair of Henry repeating rifles crossed below his skull.
The reverse of the 5 oz Colorized Proof Silver American Western Skulls Rounds includes the fried eagle. Similar to the heraldic eagle of the United States, this design includes the US national shield, arrows of war, and olive branch of peace. However, this bald eagle expired long ago and is but a skeletal figure with no feathers.
