2 oz Privateer Collection | Davy Jones Locker Ultra High Relief Silver Round
Purchase your 2 oz Privateer Collection Davy Jones Locker ultra high relief silver round for the lowest price from our online store. The Elemetal Privateer Collection, of which this round is the 7th edition, has become highly coveted, thanks to high relief designs which have made each round a 3D artwork in its own right.
The reverse of this macabre round bears a relief expression of an idiom whose origins have been lost in the seas of time; 'Davy Jones' Locker,' another name for the sea bed to which the remains of many an unlucky sailor have fallen, comes to frightful life with a human skull and rib bones, the customary treasure chest, a shipwreck and, of course, sharks circling in a watery field. This eerie scene is unmarred by title or inscription and graces the reverse alone in high relief glory.
The obverse bares the same design on all rounds in this dazzling series, the pirate motto of “No Prey, No Pay,” reinforced by the menacing image of a human skull fixed to a ship's wheel. Also on the obverse, the round's weight, metal content and purity.
The euphemistic use of the term 'Davy Jones' locker can be traced back to writings from the early 1700's, although such writings do hint at the fact that this obscure reference had been in use amongst superstitious seafarers for a long time prior to that. Take home the striking finale in this celebrated series and expand your portfolio with a 2 oz Privateer Collection Davy Jones Locker ultra high relief silver round today!
