Pirates remain a threat in many corners of the globe today, but none wield the power and naval fleets that the pirates of the golden age of piracy from the 17th and 18th centuries brought to bear. Blackbeard remains one of the most famous pirates in world history. Terrorizing the Caribbean for over a year in the early 18th century, he fell from prominence almost as quickly as he rose to fame. Right now, you can purchase 1 oz Silver Blackbeard Rounds online at Provident Metals with a gold-plated layer.
With your purchase of the 1 oz Silver Blackbeard Round from Provident Metals, you will receive a round that is individually packaged inside of an individual protective plastic capsule. The rounds are brand-new from the mint and come with a beautiful 24-karat gold layer that completely covers the obverse and reverse design field.
Blackbeard is found on the obverse of the Silver Blackbeard Round. The front-facing portrait of the infamous pirate includes his thick, black beard and lit fuses woven into the hair and protruding from beneath his hat. Blackbeard was famous for heading into battle with lit fuses woven into both his hair and his beard as an effort to strike fear in the heart of his enemies. The lit fuses in this design are smoking and help give the impression that Blackbeard is a beast spit from the belly of hell itself.
The flag that Blackbeard flew from his ships mast during battle is featured in the reverse design of the 1 oz Silver Blackbeard Round. The imagery includes a skeleton with a cup raised as the figure toasts the devil, while the left hand holds a spear that it is preparing to thrust into a heart. The inscriptions on this face of the round include Captain Edward Teach, 1 Ounce .999 Fine Silver, and Blackbeard.
Blackbeard was famous for using as little violence as possible during his reign of terror, both in his capture of enemy ships and in his treatment of his own crew. When the British Navy finally mounted a full-scale effort to defeat him, Blackbeard met with a very violent end. As his enemies closed in, Blackbeard suffered five bullet wounds and more than twenty stab wounds as he fought to survive. He was eventually beheaded and his head hung from the bowspirit of Lieutenant Robert Maynards sloop.
