CoinSilver Three Ounces 2021 American Virtues - Independence

In the United States, a significant number of private mints produce bullion which is not legal tender and is targeted at investors and not at coin collectors - such as this one.

The American Virtues Series features silver rounds with varying designs showcasing the tenets of America’s founding. This includes the likes of independence, arguably the most important virtue guiding the American spirit and a concept that buoyed the Continental Army through the highs and lows of the Revolutionary War.

Independence was the foremost virtue that the American colonists held dear in their fight for freedom. The British North American colonies had developed a unique sense of self in the more than 200 years since Great Britain first started attempting to colonise North America. Fed up with the tyrannical control of a distant monarch an ocean away, the colonists launched the American Revolution in hopes of establishing a free, independent nation in the New World.
