At the center of the pirate life is the Captain. The Captain Privateer 2 oz Silver Round is an homage to all the pirate captains out there. The captain is the boss of the pirates and consequently, it was an important yet dangerous job. This round is made from 2 oz of .999 fine silver.
- Made of 2 Troy ounces of .999 fine silver
- Obverse has a skull inside a ship’s helm with rope draped around it
- The reverse has the image of a captain standing next to a treasure chest with a sword in his hand
The obverse side of the round has the image of a skull inside of a ship’s helm. Rope is draped around this steering wheel. At the top of the round is ‘NO PREY NO PAY’ which sounds like a pirate creed. If you aren’t preying on other boats then you are getting the riches. At the bottom of the round is “2 oz FINE SILVER .999’.
On the reverse of the round is a captain standing near an open treasure chest where he looks to have retrieved a map. In his other hand is a sword which reminds the viewer that pirate captains had to always be ready for anything.
Being a captain is a necessary but dangerous job. The captain is the judge, jury, and executioner sometimes as he is the ultimate authority when at sea. That is true today even on cruise ships. The captain is the ultimate authority. Consequently, from time to time a pirate captain’s authority is questioned and he has to assert himself or risk losing the entire ship to a mutiny. Besides being good at discipline and keeping order, a captain has to be a master seaman who is a good navigator as well. He determines where they are going and what route they are taking.
Get your Privateer The Captain 2 oz Silver Round and take home a piece of pirate history. This would make an excellent gift for pirate buffs and history buffs alike.
