Tombstone, Arizona was the location of a booming mining operation, but saw a dramatic decline when the precious metals stopped flowing out of the area. While the town virtually turned into a ghost town, it is one of the most well-known mining towns in the country. The 5 oz Silver Scottsdale Tombstone Nugget Bar was created to celebrate the history of this unique town, and right now, it is available for purchase at Provident Metals.
The bars in this listing ship in individual canvas pouches, with multiples of 100 shipping in wooden crates that are meant to resemble those used to move gold and silver nuggets throughout the American West during the gold and silver boom in the late 1800s.
Tombstone was a booming silver town that was originally founded in 1877, and the silver mines in the area were estimated to have produced around $2.04 billion in silver based on modern monetary values in the following 13 years after the towns founding.
On the obverse of each bar, you will see the name of the city for which these bars were created. Tombstone was just a small town in the Arizona Territory when it was originally founded. Arizona wasnt considered a state until 1912.
The reverse face of each bar features horizontal engravings of the bars purity, metal content, weight, and the official seal of the Scottsdale Mint. The shape of the bar is meant to represent traditional nuggets of precious metals.
The Scottsdale Mint is a private minting facility located in Arizona. While the mint is mainly known for its collectors items, it does produce coins with face values for various small countries without minting facilities of their own.
