When a ship captain discovered that one of his underlings was derelict in his duties or interested in a mutiny, the common sentence was to send that individual down the plank. With their hands bound behind their back, that individual stood little chance of surviving once tossed overseas into Davey Jones’ locker.
As the fifth release in the Privateer Series, the Elemetal Mint continues its trek through the life of high-seas drifters with another stunning design. This follows in the release of the pirate-themed designs of the overall series, including the use of the common reverse design elements.
The reverse side of the 2 oz Elemetal The Plank Ultra High Relief Silver you’ll find the image of the pirate ship’s wheel, featuring a rope wrapped around the wheel and a human skeleton set in the very center. The pirate motto “No Prey, No Pay” is featured on this side along with the weight, purity, and metal content of the round.
On the obverse of each Elemetal The Plank Ultra High Relief is the image of a poor soul who’s been sentenced to death by walking the plank. As the pirate captain stands behind him with a gun and sword out to push him along, the mutineer approaches the edge of the plank with his eye’s covered and hands bound behind his back.
Each of these 2 oz Elemetal The Plank Ultra High Relief Silver Rounds is a high-relief striking, which requires a silver blank to be struck multiple times to create the 3D finish that helps bring the imagery to life on the round.
Elemetal Mint is a private minting facility, and now is the largest in the United States. It was formed in 2014 as a collaborative effort of NTR Metals, Provident Metals, and Ohio Precious Metals, with the latter transforming its Jackson, Ohio facility into the new Elemetal Mint refinery.
