The limited edition Warbird 1 oz Silver Round from Silver Bullet Silver Shield is the fifth installment of the Silver Bullet Silver Shield series, and gives the American Silver Eagle coin an anti-establishment twist. These rounds, like the preceding ones, are made from 1 troy oz of 999 fine silver.
This is the first round in the series to be produced at Golden State Mint, and the first to carry the new Silver Bullet Silver Shield logo. The Warbird was designed by Heidi Wastweet, the artist behind the popular "Freedom Girl" round.
Like all entries of the Silver Bullet Silver Shield line, the Warbird will only be minted for a limited time. Gainesville Coins is an official distributor of Silver Bullet Silver Shield products, and receives stock directly from the mint.

A Predator drone replaces the Bald Eagle of the Silver Eagle coin, and “Divide" and "Conquer” replaces “E Pluribus Unum” on the banner. The talons of the Predator clutch the arrows of war, but instead of the olive branch of peace, it holds the shackles of debt. Blood spatters mimic the feather pattern of the eagle on the American Silver Eagle. The legend "Spreading Debt and Death" frame the gruesome tableau.
The reverse has a new design to the SBSS shield, urging the viewer to “Listen to All, Follow None”, and proclaiming "A Conscious Solution To Collectivist Problems." The shield includes imagery from the Trivium, a medieval school of independent thought using Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric, updated for the modern day.
