The proof versions of the rounds in the American Western Skulls Collection have matte design elements and mirrored, clear background fields for visual contrast. Gamblers were a common fixture in bars and saloons across the Wild West and their desire to blow off steam resulted in the popularity of riverboat casinos, particularly along the Mississippi River.
On the obverse of 5 oz Proof American Western Skulls Gambler Silver Rounds is the image of a dead gambler. The figure wears a tall top hat and has a cigarette in his mouth. At the bottom of the design, there are four cards in a hand of poker that have become commonly known as the Dead man’s hand: two aces and two eights.
Wild Bill Hickok was among the many popular gamblers and gunslingers of the Wild West. Hickok famously sat in the corner of the room when gambling so he could see anyone who entered, but on a fateful day in Deadwood while gambling, Hickok sat with his back to the door. An assailant entered and shot him in the back of the head while he held a hand of two black aces and two black eights.
The reverse of Proof American Western Skulls Gambler Silver Rounds includes the fried eagle design. Common to all rounds in the series, this image reflects the heraldic eagle of the United States with a dead bird instead of the typical American bald eagle.
