Be prepared to strike at these Don’t Tread On Me Eternal Vigilance silver rounds. Each brilliant uncirculated coin contains 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver and was designed with the concepts of Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson in mind.
The reverse depicts a spectacularly-detailed bald eagle standing above a banner featuring the words “Eternal Vigilance,” which was designed for Provident Metals by expert sculptor and engraver, Thomas D. Rogers. Rogers is a former sculptor/engraver for the US Mint. Inscriptions of “THE PRICE OF LIBERTY” as well as the coins weight and purity are also displayed along with the national bird of the United States of America.
“Eternal Vigilance” is part of a quote often attributed to Thomas Jefferson in the early to mid 1800s that says in some variations, “eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” He was speaking of the fragile nature of freedom and for it to be maintained, it must be properly cared for.
The obverse honors Franklin and our nation’s past with a hissing rattlesnake coiled in the grass prepared to strike. Surrounding the snake are the words “DON’T TREAD ON ME” and “ESTABLISHED IN 1754.”
Franklin is known as a Founding Father, world leader, inventor and for his many other historic accomplishments. One of his well-known productions featured the sketching of a snake in a political cartoon with the words “Join, or Die” where he urged colonies to join together for the French and Indian war. The illustration became a national identity for unity among American Colonies and was featured on the Gadsden flag.
These unique and original coins are perfect for investors, collectors and American history enthusiasts, and will arrive in new condition.
