Silver art rounds feature a diverse array of important people and events, which commemorate history like the Don't Tread On Me Boston Tea Party 1 oz Silver Round. The reverse features a man throwing over a chest of tea from a ship inscribed, “Boston Tea Party—1773.” The Boston Tea Party took place on December 16, 1773, which was conducted by American patriots as a political protest against British Parliament's unfair tax on tea. The weight and purity are noted along the bottom.
The rattlesnake was popularized by Benjamin Franklin, who preferred the courageous and unrelenting snake over the majestic eagle as America's symbol. A coiled snake and the motto "Don't Tread on Me" appear on the round's obverse, an image once incorporated by Continental Colonel Christopher Gadsden on an early American flag. The lower rim reads, "INDEPENDENT LIVING."
This is a fantastic coin with significant American history!
