The first release in the series is the Indian Chief. This silver round shows the skeletal remains of a Native American in his full warrior headdress. The full plumage of feathers stretches from side to side, with beautiful colorization added that works in shades of red, white, and blue throughout the design itself. Below the skull there is a set of tomahawks in a crossed position, with engravings of “Liberty” above and the issue date of “2017” below. The Western Skulls collection consists of six rounds adapted from the familiar US American Silver Eagle, with a twist. Each is a unique western archetype, rendered as a highly detailed skull.
The common reverse of the American Western Skulls silver rounds feature the design that will be used throughout the series. Referred to as the fried eagle, this image is a clever twist on the heraldic eagle found on the reverse of American Silver Eagle coins. It features the American bald eagle’s skeletal form behind the national shield as it clutches the arrows of war in one talon and the olive branch of peace in the other.
