There is no time period in American history that has enjoyed greater attention culturally in the United States and around the globe than the days of the Old West. America’s expansion beyond the original 13 colonies and then the Mississippi River tamed the frontier, while pitting settlers against Native Americans in a battle for land. Today there are countless artworks that revive the images of the Old West. Available today, the 1 oz Antique American Western Skulls Indian Chief Silver Round is one such example available to you online from JM Bullion.

Expansion of the American frontier occurred in various waves during the 19th century and early 20th century. Generally speaking it is considered to have stretched from the Louisiana Purchase and the settlings of lands between the Mississippi River and Appalachian Mountains, and later in the American West beyond the Mississippi River. Among the cultural and historical pieces of the time, skulls, sheriffs, and Native Americans feature prominently.
On the obverse of the American Western Skulls Indian Chief Silver Round you’ll notice a front-facing effigy of a Native American leader. His figure is imposing as he dons the full, feathered headdress of an experienced leader and warrior, but his facial features are bare to the eye as he possesses no skin. There is an engravings on this side of the word “Liberty” above and the years of issue as “2017” below.
The reverse of the 1 oz Antique American Western Skulls Indian Chief Round is the heraldic eagle design also referred to as the fried eagle. It includes an eagle stripped of its feathers, with the bony bird sitting behind the national shield as its clutches the olive branch and arrows. There are 13 stars above its head and a banner in its beak that reads “E Pluribus Unum.”
