Today I visited my local coin shop.

And I came home with a new silver art bar! ๐Ÿ˜


Old Ironsides

USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned warship in the world still afloat. Nicknamed โ€œOld Ironsides,โ€ she is today berthed in Boston and is known as โ€œAmericaโ€™s Ship of State.โ€... On August 19 (1812)she ran across the British frigate Guerriere, who accepted battle. In a short and sharp engagement, Constitution wrecked Guerriere while suffering only slight damage herself. This victory gave rise to the comment โ€œher sides are made of iron,โ€ and her nickname โ€œOld Ironsides.โ€ Source

This Madison Mint bar is one troy ounce of .999 pure silver. Struck in 1972, there are three different versions of the Old Ironsides bar. Each shares the same image on the obverse, with a different image (or in the case of my bar, no image) on the barโ€™s reverse.

I love a nice piece of ship silver!

The shop was also selling a 10oz JM bar for $159! Alas, I didnโ€™t have that kind of fiat for silver today. Instead I used close to that for three new pairs of kicks! ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ ๐Ÿ‘  ๐Ÿ‘ž

Ooh, you picked up a cool piece! I'll say it's @stokjockey post worthy! I like it a lot!!


That is a BIG compliment! @stokjockey worthy! Is anyone but the legend himself really stokjockey worthy? ๐Ÿ˜


Ran across a local collector that collected coins from all over the world on just the Ship theme, never in my life I've ever seen that much.


Oh wow! That would be awesome. It always fascinates me to see what bars, coins, etc people are drawn to. A big collection of theme silver would be fantastic to see.

Big fan of ship bars and coins. Nice score dfinn

Awesome price of silver. I need to check out my city and see if there is a coin shop. Iโ€™ll let you know soon if there is one.

If youโ€™re lucky maybe you will find more than one. I have found my local place is mostly cheaper than online, which is always nice. โ˜บ๏ธ
