When one thinks of the Wild West the mind often conjures images of damsels in distress waiting for a brave sheriff and his posse to come to the rescue. The aggressor, in many cases, was often an indigenous tribal member.
The reality was much different. In most cases, when native warriors took up arms it was in defense of their ancestral homelands or to push back against the aggressions of the US Army or settlers. The Warrior pays homage to the braves who fought to defend their way of life in the face of overwhelming odds.
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.
