Honor one of the Civil War’s greatest leaders — while adding precious metals to your portfolio — when you order a Confederate States of America Admiral Raphael Semmes Silver round.

The obverse of each private mint round features a close-up portrait of the Admiral, along with the inscriptions IN GOD WE TRUST, ADM. RAPHAEL SEMMES, CSA NAVY and CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA.

The reverse features the commerce raider, CSS Alabama, which Semmes commanded. Above it hangs the Confederate flag, and the Admiral’s Confederate States Navy battle ensign is below. It is inscribed with CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA, ONE TROY OUNCE .999 FINE SILVER, CSS ALABAMA and SILVER DOLLAR.

Admiral Semmes and the CSS Alabama

Born in Charles County, Maryland, Raphael Semmes (1809 – 1877) served as an officer in both the United States Navy and the Confederate States Navy. During the Civil War, he was captain of the CSS Alabama, garnering him high praise and a promotion to Rear Admiral and Brigadier
General — simultaneously.

Semmes commanded the Alabama from 1862 – 1864, taking it across the globe. On June 19, 1864, the ship was overtaken off the shores Cherbourg, France by the USS Kearsarge. Commanded by Captain John Ancrum Winslow, the Kearsarge proved victorious and Admiral Semmes was forced to surrender as the Alabama fell to the bottom of the sea.
