Each of the 5 oz Silver Texas Ranger Wagon Wheel Badges you can purchase here today come inside of protective plastic. To enhance the Old West charm of the rounds, Intaglio Mint has applied an antique polish. Not only does this provide that Old West look, it helps highlight the finer points of the design.
From Mexican territory to independent republic and state within the Union, the Texas Rangers have patrolled the wilds of Texas to keep peace-loving citizens safe from marauding bandits, criminal gangs, the Mexican Army, and even hostile Native Tribes. Whatever the task called for, the Rangers would step up to the plate to represent the Lone Star State.
These 5 oz Silver Texas Ranger Wagon Wheel Badge Rounds accurately reflect the imagery found on the original Texas Ranger Badges. Though the first Rangers were 10 men chosen by Stephen F. Austin to protect new settlers in 1823, the division’s badges weren’t commissioned until 1889, with the Mexican 5 Peso coin as the medium for the production.
On the reverse of all Silver Texas Ranger Wagon Wheel Badges you’ll find the imagery from the reverse of the Mexican 5 Peso. The coat of arms of Mexico is based upon the Aztec “Piedra del Sol” design, with an engraving of “Estados Unidos Mexicanos,” or United Mexican States.
The obverse of all 5 oz Silver Texas Ranger Wagon Wheel Badges includes the five-pointed Lone Star of Texas. The star’s five points form the spoke in the wagon wheel of the design, with engravings of “Co.A” and “Texas Rangers” on the badge, as well as a flanking design on the sides of laurels of oak.
Intaglio Mint was formed in 2010 by coin designer and enthusiast Mark Bogani. Together with Timothy and Anthony Grat, this three-man operation creates unique silver products from its coining facility in Waco, Texas.
