Be prepared to strike at these Don’t Tread On Me Eternal Vigilance silver rounds exclusively minted at the Provident Mint. Each Brilliant Uncirculated coin contains 1 Troy Ounce of .999 fine silver and was designed with the concepts of Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson in mind.
The reverse depicts a spectacularly-detailed bald eagle standing above a banner featuring the words “Eternal Vigilance,” which was designed for Provident Metals by expert sculptor and engraver, Thomas D. Rogers. Rogers is a former sculptor/engraver for the US Mint. Inscriptions of “THE PRICE OF LIBERTY” as well as the coins weight and purity are also displayed along with the national bird of the United States of America.
“Eternal Vigilance” is part of a quote often attributed to Thomas Jefferson in the early to mid 1800s that says in some variations, “eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” He was speaking of the fragile nature of freedom and for it to be maintained, it must be properly cared for.
The obverse honors Franklin and our nation’s past with a hissing rattlesnake coiled in the grass prepared to strike. Surrounding the snake are the words “DON’T TREAD ON ME” and “ESTABLISHED IN 1754.”
Franklin is known as a Founding Father, world leader, inventor and for his many other historic accomplishments. One of his well-known productions featured the sketching of a snake in a political cartoon with the words “Join, or Die” where he urged colonies to join together for the French and Indian war. The illustration became a national identity for unity among American Colonies and was featured on the Gadsden flag.
Each Don’t Tread On Me Eternal Vigilance coin can be found only at Provident Metals, where striking is made easy with our convenient and secure online ordering system. These unique and original coins are perfect for investors, collectors and American history enthusiasts, and will arrive in new condition.

- A must have for this Tea Party fanaticRoberton 8/11/14
OverallThanks again Provident!
- Went back to buy some moreIrison 4/8/14
OverallIt's a beautiful coin. I think it's a little over priced. The design is more simplistic than some of the others, but the message itself is great. I enjoy giving them as gifts to help inspire loved ones to maintain their own vigilance. I first bought just a few in case I would be disappointed, however, I am pleased with what I saw so I purchased a few more.
- The Price of Liberty!!!DOUGon 1/8/14
OverallGood looking Round , Back of the Coin stands out more than the snake.
a bit high on the price for what it is,I could buy a Maple for same price.
So will only buy more if price drops.

Didn't realize all the great stuff you guys carry! I'm making a list right now!! Want some of the Brass Don't tread on Me's to pass out to friends. Thanks so much.
- Great message, Great roundT.A.R.on 9/14/13
OverallI don't understand the complaints about a rough edge or poor quality. These are beautiful, perfect condition under 10x microscope, and neither have a sharp edge. (ordered 2) The weight was good on these too. I weighed them at 31.2481g and 31.1389g. So, over 1 ozt each.

OverallPurchased a few to see the quality and was very satisfied with the results. A small rim burr as result of reeded edge does not distract. A very nice bullion coin. Great gift for my Tea Party friends!
