The first silver round commemorating both the original Spanish Pieces of Eight silver coins, and Pirate lore!
Praedatum In Mundo translates into "A Predatory World" that defines the struggle of man against nature to extract this rare, precious metal, but also the violent clash of civilizations to control the treasure of the world.
The ocean and sky in the background of the Silver Shield Pieces of Eight represent the treacherous seas that would claim many a man in search of this glorious treasure. (Show more....) Explorers who sought to find new trading routes with Asia soon discovered the new world and all of its riches.
The Silver Shield Pieces of Eight has an Aztec inspired lower border that represents the powerful Native American empires that arose long before European discovery.
The star design on the obverse side represents the eight pieces of the original Spanish Dollar. Each point of the star on this solid 1 ounce silver round shows the 8 fractional measures, with each section embossed with 1/8th oz and the 999 purity. (Note: This modern Pieces of Eight coin cannot be broken into 8 pieces without destroying it!)
