Provident Metals introduces Third Silver Round in the Privateer Series

Provident Metals is excited to introduce the third silver round in the Privateer Series: The Captain 2oz Silver Ultra High Relief Round.  The piratic round was struck with two troy ounces of .999 fine silver at the Elemetal Mint.

 

“The Captain,” known for his piracy on the open seas, is featured on the reverse of this 2 oz Ultra High Relief Silver Round.  Strapped with weapons across his chest and holding a sword and treasure map, he stands beside a conch shell and a treasure chest filled to the brim with coins as the sea roars in the background. He wears a long coat, an eye patch, hat, and a long, gnarled beard.

Pirates like The Captain were known for capturing vessels on the open waters and robbing the ships of their valuable belongings.

The reverse image displays the pirate as he proudly stands beside a hoard of gold, silver, and precious stones.

The common obverse of the Privateer series features a human skull atop a wooden wheel that’s wrapped in tattered rope. Reminiscent of the Jolly Roger, the design is surrounded by inscriptions of “NO PREY NO PAY” and “2 oz. FINE SILVER .999. “No prey, no pay” is a piratical phrase that meant if a raid was unsuccessful and no valuable commodities were acquired, the privateers would not be paid for their efforts.

The Captain follows the release of the Plank and Siren in the series which carries a pirate-themed design with high relief images rising off of the surface on both the obverse and reverse.  Unique in appearance, these extraordinary rounds are excellent options for Silver Bullion collectors.

Many thanks to Provident Metals for the innovative approaches to the bullion collecting public.
