Mexican Banditos were often depicted in just one way in American folklore. The bandito was an outlaw from Mexico that would conduct cross-border raids between the US and Mexico, and almost always featured as the villain of Westerns. In reality, even banditos could hold themselves to higher moral standards. Like gunslingers, some banditos were Robin Hood-type characters while others were revolutionaries fighting against corrupt governments.
On the obverse of the 5 oz Antique American Western Skulls Mexican Bandito Silver Rounds, you’ll find the image of this bandito figure. Derived from the Spanish bandido, the Mexican outlaw was known as a bandito largely because of his typical role as a villain. This bandito wears a large sombrero with a thick mustache on his face and bandoliers holding his bullets below his skull.
The reverse side of the 5 oz American Western Skulls Mexican Bandito Silver Round features the fried eagle. This depiction of the heraldic eagle of the United States includes the effigy of a bald eagle behind the national shield, but this bird is dead and has no feathers.
These 5 oz Antique American Western Skulls Mexican Bandito Silver Rounds arrive with protective packaging and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Each COA reflects the individual serial number engraved on the round’s edge. These antique rounds have a distinct polish that delivers heirloom quality to the visual aspects.
