During the American Revolution, units of the Continental Army would occasionally use the skull is military unit insignia. Though not authorized by superiors of the army at large, the designs were nonetheless accepted in an effort to boost morale and foster a sense of cohesiveness in the units. Today, the skull is still an important, if not an unofficial symbol of major US Military units.
The obverse face of the 1 oz Deuce Four Skull Silver Round includes the image of the popular skull at the center of the design element. The broader design concept harkens to the colonial era in North America when the colonies that would become the United States began to fight for freedom from the United Kingdom.
In this design, the skull is featured with two M-16 assault rifles below and the popular snake from the Gadsden flag below that. An inscription of “Est. 1776” denotes the founding of the United States when it declared independence from Britain. An inscription around the outer rim points to the attitude of the day: “When Injustice Becomes Law, Resistance Becomes Duty.”
On the reverse side of all 1 oz Deuce Four Skull Silver Rounds is the depiction of the Intaglio Mint logo and a new background field element. The “I” logo of the Intaglio Mint is at the center, with “winding” radial lines now in the background field.
