Teach is believed to have been born in Bristol sometime in 1680. There is not much known about his youth in England. At the time, Bristol was one of the most important cities in England as a major international seaport connecting England with its growing colonies in North America and the Caribbean. It was there, thousands of miles from his native England that Teach made a name for himself that persists to this day.

The obverse of the 1 oz Blackbeard Silver Round features a portrait of the famed pirate. Blackbeard was famously unique among pirates for avoiding violence whenever possible. He instead relied upon intimidation through his personal appearance and his reputation. Associated by some of his targets with the devil himself, Blackbeard often wove fuses into his beard and lit the ends before battle, giving him the appearance of something spat straight from hell.
On the reverse side of Blackbeard Silver Rounds is a replica of his ships flag. Blackbeard captained a ship known as the Queen Annes Revenge. He captured the French slave ship La Concorde and renamed it Queen Annes Revenge. Before his life of piracy, he served in the Royal Navy in some capacity, most likely as a privateer, during the War of the Spanish Succession. That war was known as Queen Annes War in the Americas.
