One of America's most iconic slogans and images is shown on this handsome 1 oz. silver round! Benjamin Franklin first used the rattlesnake in the 1750s and later it became a symbol of the colony's rebellion against Britain. But it was Christopher Gadsden who married the rattlesnake to the defiant anti-British phrase "Don't Tread on Me," in 1775 and created a flag to present to Commodore Esek Hopkins commander of the newly formed U.S. Navy. Today the navy's shoulder patch still bears that slogan, but shows an uncoiled rattler.
Each 99.9% silver round displays the rattlesnake on the obverse, with don't tread on me across the top. The reverse features an intricate shield with the 2018 date, weight andpurity around the outside. This bold, patriotic round makes the perfect accent for any collection or gift for a history buff – get yours now!
