Liberty or Death has been the battle cry of revolutions for centuries, one of the most notable being the American Revolution. This round captures the idea with a striking visual reminiscent of the old pirate flag. The interesting point is not that people must become pirates, but that the elite already are. The 13 stars and the colonial hat and muskets are to remind us that liberty is within our grasp, all we have to do is take it.
The obverse features a skull and crossed muskets, very much like the old pirate flags. The skull features a hat typical of the colonial era no doubt to remind of days gone past. The background displays 13 stars in a circular pattern, much like the American Revolutionary flags of old. The words "Liberty or Death" are featured prominently and express an idea "as old as the hills".
The reverse shows the revised Silver Shield logo with the trivium in the centre encircled by the words "Silver Shield 1 Troy ounce 2014 999 Pure AG" surrounded by 47 bullets.
This design is both a reminder of what we had and a warning of what it has become.
This round will come with a certificate of authenticity and a coin capsule.
