Youve heard his name, you know his dark reputation. He went by many an alias but it was his pirate name that continues to live on in infamy. Captain Edward Thatch, Jr. Better known as Blackbeard. The 5 oz Silver Antique Blackbeard Round pays tribute to the pirate who has inspired many a dark tale, book, and movie. The round contains 5 Troy oz of .999 pure silver. It was produced by Anonymous Mint, which is a mint with a reputation for producing some of the most collectible rounds in the world. Minting numbers for this round were limited to just 500, which goes a long way toward ensuring their collectability.
Known throughout the world and passage of time as Blackbeard, the worlds most famous pirate had humble beginnings. Born in England, in 1680, Edward Teach joined the Royal Navy when he was able.
It is thought that Teach served in the Royal Navy as a sailor during what was known as Queen Annes War. Teach eventually signed on as a crew member with Benjamin Hornigold on the Bahamian island of New Providence. After spending time serving with Hornigold for a year, Blackbeard embarked on his own adventures on a captured French merchant vessel he renamed Queen Annes Revenge.
The obverse design of the 5 oz Silver Antique Blackbeard Round features the image of the pirate Blackbeard. Woven into his long locks are canon fuses. Blackbeard was known to light up the fuses while in battle, to scare off his enemies. It is said that Blackbeard captured more than 40 ships during his time sailing the high seas.
The reverse design of the 5 oz Silver Antique Blackbeard Round features the flag from the Queen Annes Revenge, Blackbeards ship. The flag depicted a skeleton hoisting a drink in toast to the devil. Also featured on the flag was a spear shown to be piercing a heart. Legend has it that just the sight of Blackbeards flag flying high above the Queen Annes Revenge was enough to lead some ships to flee or surrender.
Anonymous Mint is a privately owned business that produces interesting and collectible silver round series. These include the 1 oz and 5 oz Antique Blackbeard Silver Rounds. The designs of the rounds were created by Julie Lindquist. The rounds feature an interesting antique patina that lends an heirloom quality to the piece, while also adding subtle depth and warmth to the design features on the round.
