2021 TEXAS SILVER ROUN
The 2021 Texas Silver Round displays a scene from the famous Battle of the Alamo. It depicts two Texian soldiers including the American icon, Davy Crockett, attempting to fend off Mexican soldiers attempting to breach the walls of the Alamo. The 2021 Texas Silver Round is the second release in a four year "Battles of the Texas Revolution" series by the Texas Mint.
One of the most famous battles in American history occurred at the Alamo Mission in San Antonio de Béxar (modern-day San Antonio, Texas) from February 23rd - March 6th, 1836. At the end of a 13-day siege, President General Antonio López de Santa Anna and his Mexican troops reclaimed the Alamo Mission, killing the Texian and immigrant occupiers. Davy Crockett was one of the last standing defenders.
2020 TEXAS SILVER ROUND
The stunning 2020 Texas Silver Round depicts a scene from the Battle of Gonzales, with three Texian revolutionaries defending the famous Gonzales cannon, while brandishing the Come And Take It Flag. The Texas Silver Round’s specifications – “.9999 Silver • One Troy Oz” – are engraved over the Capitol, communicating the unique purity of this round only matched by select products from the Royal Canadian Mint and the Perth Mint of Australia. The trademarked silhouette of Texas mint mark, the official mint mark for the Texas Mint, is visible to the right of the Come And Take It Flag. The weight and purity of the round are guaranteed.
The battle of Gonzales, fought on October 2nd, 1835 was the first military engagement of the Texas Revolution, when the Texians refused to return a cannon belonging to the Mexican army and presented in response the now famous Come and Take It flag. The Texians won the battle in several hours upon initiating the attack on the Mexican soldiers.
The obverse of each high-quality mint strike Texas Silver Round features Texas’ iconic lone star in the foreground. The smooth engraving of the star is framed by a textured topographical outline of the state of Texas. “TEXAS” arches proudly over the top of the round’s obverse in large capital letters, with “Precious Metals” presented inversely along the opposite side. The round’s mintage year is engraved in the bottom left of the round, just southwest of what would be the Rio Grande bordering Texas and Mexico.
