Wild West – Billy the Kid 1oz Silver Coin
Step into the dusty trails of the Old West as we embark on an exciting journey with the launch of our Wild West coin series. Our inaugural release features Billy the Kid on a 1oz pure silver coin, one of the most enigmatic and notorious figures in American history.
The Legend of Billy the Kid:
Born Henry McCarty but known to the world as Billy the Kid, this young gunslinger rose to infamy during the tumultuous days of the American frontier. A central figure in the Lincoln County War, Billy became a symbol of the untamed West—a charismatic, quick-witted, and elusive figure who lived on the fringes of society.
Crafted with precision and attention to detail, the coin is a masterpiece. It displays the infamous outlaw in relief and captured on a wanted poster. Punched-out bullet holes are included for an extra dose of realism. The antique finish gives a rustic charm as if the coin has gone through the messy trails of history. To further embrace the frontier spirit, the inscriptions ‘Outlaw Billy the Kid’ and ‘Wild West’ have been applied. As legal tender, the Public Seal of Niue is engraved on the obverse.
With only 1,999 coins minted, each one represents a tangible piece of American history, connecting collectors to the rugged days of the Wild West.
The packaging, like the coin itself, is a journey into the rugged landscapes that shaped history. Open it to reveal your coin tucked in black velvet and encapsulated in an acrylic capsule for extra protection. Printed on the back is a Certificate of Authenticity and the unique serial number.
