Product Description

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.

  1. Nice Coin with historical theme from Provident
    Philipon 1/21/15
    Nice coin with great message. Had to order another one in Copper, as my wife wanted one to keep in her wallet or purse to show friends. Agree cost should be like the Prospector round, which is struck with incredible detail, by comparison. But very cool for a private mint round. Another nice product from Provident in my collection!
  2. Great Gift to Spread the Fight
    Dougon 12/17/14
    I order the coins as gifts for all my children, cousins and friends. Great way to spread the word that our freedom is just one generation from extinction if we don't have eternal vigilance!
  3. Great deal, beautiful design.
    Lizon 12/6/14
    Beautiful and meaningful design at a very reasonable price over spot. Well worth it.
  4. Round = 5 Price = 3
    Johnon 11/22/14
    This is a beautiful round. Its a simplistic design. Simplistic in looks, but powerful message. It is something any true patriot would want to own. With that said, it is over priced as others have said.

    I added 1 to my collection but do not plan to stack more unless there is a decent price drop.
  5. Good Deal
    Toddon 9/12/14
    Very Nice!
  6. NICE
    Alberto on 8/27/14
    What a round, two messages I can identify with. Very good detail as well.
  7. A must have for this Tea Party fanatic
    Roberton 8/11/14
    Thanks again Provident!
  8. Went back to buy some more
    Irison 4/8/14
    It'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.
  9. The Price of Liberty!!!
    DOUGon 1/8/14
    Good 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.
  10. Not bad
    phillipon 12/10/13
    Aside from the sharp edges, this is a nicely detailed and well struck round.
  11. Nice product
    Williamon 12/9/13
    Coin is nice, good detail and packaged nicely. Very pleased with delivery speed. Edges are a little rough, but other than that very nice coin. Would buy again.
  12. Overall nice coin
    chrison 11/24/13
    Coin is pretty nice but mine arrived spots that looked like toning spots. Other than that it's nice, I guess silver is silver.
  13. Great looking 1 oz silver round
    Everyday Americanon 11/23/13
    I bought this for the free shipping. It fits perfectly in the recommended air tight. This coin does have a few small scratches on it. It looks much better in person than the copper version.

    This was my in my first purchase from PM. Thanks for the fast (free) shipping!
  14. Great Coin.
    Justinon 10/24/13
    Nice addition to my collection. The detail in the scales is great, the eagle on the back has great definition as well. Quality strike right here, Provident Metals impressed me as 3 of the 4 coins from their Mint received 5 star reviews. Looking forward to ordering from you guys again in the future.
    DAVIDon 10/18/13

  16. Mach 1 Service
    Williamon 10/11/13
    I placed order on the 9th, got home yesterday on the 10th and my Don't Tread on Me silver coins were waiting on me. You guys read my mind. I saw we are both in Dallas, but you talk about fast.....ok, I"m thinking of a number between 1 and 10...LOL, thanks, the coins are great, love what they symbolize. 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.
  17. Great message, Great round
    T.A.R.on 9/14/13
    I 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.
  18. So Cool!
    Jeffreyon 8/10/13
    Just Awesome! Mr. Frankiln would be so proud. This is my new favorite coin. I even carry it around with me in my wallet in the plastic pouch of course. Don't Tread On Me!!!!!
  19. My first purchase.
    Billyon 8/4/13
    Beautiful design! This is one of several coins I order on my first purchase. The packaging was great and I received my coins faster than I expected. The coin had a clean design and the surface was without defect. I am very satisfied with my purchase and I look forward buying more from this Company!
  20. Nice Coin
    Stephenon 7/29/13
    Got my order this morning and got to say. Very sharp and good looking coin. Nice stamping and very bright coin. Happy with my purchase. Thanks
  21. Great Eye Appeal
    Charleson 7/28/13
    Purchased 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!
  22. Great looking silver coin................
    Steveon 7/26/13
    I'm impressed with the detail of the coin...good time to buy while silver is on the dip! Will buy more soon....Great service and fast shipping! I'm a return customer!
