The riders of the Pony Express were a symbol of the rugged individualism of the United States during an era of westward expansion. These hearty individuals and the strong, reliable horses they rode kept the new US state of California connected the contiguous states of the East Coast at a valuable time of growth for the West and conflict back home in the East. Right now, you can purchase the new 100 oz Silver Pony Bar from SilverTowne online at Provident Metals.
With your purchase of the 100 oz Silver Pony Bar in this product listing at Provident Metals, you receive an item that is part of a new release from SilverTowne. These beautiful cast silver bars will be individually shipped inside of boxes with an identifying label on the outside. For multiples of five silver bars, a Master Box is available.
On the obverse side of 100 oz Silver Pony Bars, you will find markings of the weight, metal content, and purity, along with a rider zipping along on his mount. The design of the rider features a horse at a full sprint as the wind whips across the figure of the rider nearly blowing his hat right off his head. The inscriptions in the lower-right field identify the features of the bar and include 100 oz, Fine Silver, and 999.
The reverse of 100 oz Silver Pony Bars, like many other cast silver bars, is left blank on purpose by the mint. Although SilverTowne doesnt have any dedicated design element for this field or text inscriptions, it is not without some visual appeal. The production process for cast silver bars often results in visible striations, texture lines, and other features that form as the silver cools in the mold. This is a normal part of the process in silver bar casting.
Though the bar is not specifically labeled a Pony Express piece, you can see the inspiration derived from the postal service that connected California to the Eastern United States. In operation for just 18 months, the Pony Express used a series of 190 stations stretching from Missouri to California. Riders would push a mount to its maximum potential between each station, switching horses to continue the ride, and at certain intervals switching riders. Prior to the transcontinental telegraph, the Pony Express was the quickest and most reliable means of transmitting messages between the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts of the US. The average delivery time across the Pony Express was 10 days.
