The American Western Skulls Collection is a collaborative work that includes Osborne Mint working as the production facility in this exciting new six-design series. The first image in the series captures the Indian Chief, a skull figure with a full warrior’s headdress upon its head. Each 5 oz Proof American Western Skulls Indian Chief Silver Round includes protective plastic for shipping.
In total, the new collection will feature six designs with two weights and three available finishes to the rounds. The 1 oz products are offered in proof, antique, and colorized proof, while the 5 oz rounds are offered only in proof and vintage finishes for collectors.
On the obverse of the 5 oz Proof American Western Skulls Indian Chief Silver Round you’ll find the frightening image of an Indian Chief’s skeletal remains, with his haunting eyes staring you down as you gaze into the design features. Engravings include the word “Liberty” above and the year of issue below. There is also a set of crossed tomahawks at the bottom.
The reverse side of all American Western Skulls Indian Chief Silver Rounds will remind most avid collectors of the American Silver Eagle coin. In this instance, the round’s reverse features a fried-out American eagle. The heraldic eagle design used on the nation’s official bullion coin is barren, with no feathers on the eagle. Included in the standard design are the 13 stars above the eagle, the nation’s heraldic shield, and the arrows of war and olive branch of peace.
Osborne Mint was founded in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1835. The company it traces its roots to was started when Andrew Jackson was president and there was no official banknote for the federal government.
