Benjamin Franklin once urged American colonies to unite during the French and Indian War by sketching a political cartoon of a snake with the phrase “Join, or Die.” While owning the Don’t Tread On Me copper rounds at Provident Metals may not be as critical as a “do or die” situation, you’ll want to strike at these exclusive rounds while supplies last.
Each brilliant uncirculated Don’t Tread on Me copper round contains 1 AVDP ounce of .999 fine copper and was created from the concepts of Thomas Jefferson and Franklin.
The obverse of each coin pays homage to our nation’s past, featuring a rattlesnake preparing to strike from a coiled position in the grass. The hissing snake is based off of Franklin’s design and is surrounded by the inscriptions “DON’T TREAD ON ME” and “ESTABLISHED IN 1754.” The original sketch unified American colonies and was illustrated on the Gadsden flag.
The reverse showcases a spectacular bald eagle standing proudly above a banner reading “Eternal Vigilance,” which is a snippet from a quote often attributed to Jefferson in the early to mid-1800s. A variation of the quote reads, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty,” meaning the nation’s fragile freedom should be properly cared for. Inscriptions read “THE PRICE OF LIBERTY” above the eagle with the coin’s weight and fineness below.
Thomas D. Rogers, expert sculptor and engraver, designed the reverse exclusively for Provident Metals. Rogers previously worked at the U.S. Mint as an engraver and sculptor.
