The 1 oz Silver Pieces of Eight Round is now available online from Provident Metals in new condition. As a part of the Silver Shield Collection from the Golden State Mint, this round pays homage to the wars waged over the earths natural resources, including silver. All rounds in the Silver Shield Collection feature unique designs dedicated to controversial topics of the modern era.
The 1 oz Silver Pieces of Eight Round focuses on the consequences of the exploitation of precious metals and other natural resources. Among these devastations was the toll of Spanish Conquistadors on indigenous tribes in Central and South American. These soldiers and explorers brought war and disease which devasted various empires, including the Aztec Empire. Although the Spanish were among the first to bring devastation to the land, various other countries soon followed.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Silver Pieces of Eight Round, you will find a detailed design with various symbols. In the center of the design field is a skull surrounded by eight swords in the background. Each sword represents countries that uprooted indigenous life in the Americas, including Spain, England, France, Portugal, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, and the United States. Praedatum in Mundo is engraved along the top of the obverse. This Latin phrased translates to A Predatory World and denotes the power of mankind over the natural world.
The reverse of the 1 oz Silver Pieces of Eight Round is the original design found in the Silver Shield Collection. This image is of a sun with eight points and flames ignited from the suns center. Silver Shield is engraved along the border.
