    Silver Rounds in the Frank Frazetta Collection

    The Frank Frazetta Collection of silver rounds was one of the first silver round series to focus on the works of a singular artist in low-mintage releases. The collection was authorized by Frank Frazetta Jr. and the foundation responsible for preserving the fantasy and science-fiction works of Frank Sr. With three major designs issued, the Frank Frazetta Collection included various options and finishes for those buying silver online.

    Highlights the Frank Frazetta Collection

    In the Frank Frazetta Collection, many of his greatest works of fantasy and science fiction feature on silver rounds. In this collection, silver buyers have a choice between 1 oz and 5 oz silver rounds for sale. Each of the designs was available in a proof version with standard frosted design elements and mirrored backgrounds. Additionally, there were antique versions with matte elements and the visual appeal of ancient coinage. Mintage caps existed for all rounds, which were set at:

    • 1 oz proof – 10,000 rounds
    • 1 oz antique – 1,000 rounds
    • 5 oz proof – 2,000 rounds

    Individual rounds in the series come with plastic capsules and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. The Frank Frazetta Collection was among the first to use edge-lettered serial numbers, matched by those on the COA. This is a popular tactic in the design of silver rounds since the introduction of Frank Frazetta rounds.

    Finally, all Frank Frazetta Collection silver rounds share a common obverse design. Included is the image of Frazetta from the heyday of his career, with engravings of “Frank Frazetta” and his lifetime “1928-2010.” The weight, purity, and metal content of the round are also visible on the obverse.

    Designs in the Frank Frazetta Collection

    Frazetta was responsible for the production of countless works of art which appeared on comic books, novel covers, posters, and various other mediums. Though it was undoubtedly difficult to hand select a few of his best, the series eventually featured a total of three different designs that represent many of the most popular in the collection. Silver round designs in this series included:

    • Silver Warrior: Frazetta’s career began in the 1940s amidst World War II, and his first major work of art to catch on was the Silver Warrior. Not only was the Silver Warrior his first major design, but it remains the most popular of his many works of art to this day. The warrior is a muscular figure depicted riding on a sled with his massive sword in one hand. The sled is drawn by a team of bears. This design is believed by many to have revolutionized designs in the sword and sorcery genres.
    • The Death Dealer: Frazetta developed the figure that became known as the Death Dealer in a 1973 fantasy painting. Another enduring image, the Death Dealer was first popularly used on the debut album cover of Molly Hatchet and is still used by the United States Army’s Third Corps. The Death Dealer rides on a powerful horse with a horned helmet and full armor. He protects himself with a body-length shield and wields a bloody ax in his right hand.
    • Barbarian: The Barbarian design came to popularity as part of the Conan the Barbarian science-fiction novels. Part of the sword and sorcery genres, the Barbarian figure maintains a humble stance despite his muscular physique that should fear no man. His sullen face looks downward and the sword he knows he can wield, but hopes he won’t have to use.

    About Frank Frazetta

    Frazetta’s career began in 1944 at the age of 16 when he began working on comics with artist Bernard Baily’s studio. His first job was conducting pencil clean-ups on prints. His first comic work included inking the eight-page story “Snowman.” Soon, he was drawing art for comic books across genres including Westerns, fantasy, mystery, and historical dramas. By the 1970s, he had established himself as a leading artist in the science-fiction and fantasy genres and his works have been viewed by millions who no doubt fail to realize the man behind the images they’ve seen countless times.
