Show Off Your American Pride with Scottsdale Patriotic Silver!

Summer is the peak season for patriotism in the United States as the nation celebrates its birthday each year on the 4th of July. With that said, there’s never a bad time to show off your pride as an American and Scottsdale Mint has a new series of colorized silver bars featuring American design themes.

Collection Themes

Scottsdale’s Patriotic Silver Bar collection offers 1 oz silver bars with .999 purity in each piece. All bars have a shared reverse design element with the Scottsdale Lion logo. The designs are in portrait orientation with the half of the lion head featured on the right side of the field, while the left side of the field includes the name of the mint. You’ll also find the identifying hallmarks of each bar on the reverse. Each bar comes with its own, unique design celebrating America.

A Founding Father

The term Founding Fathers refers to the men who lead the American Colonies through the American Revolution and later helped form the foundation of the United States of America. None of these men was as important to the cause as George Washington, Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army and first President of the United States.

Washington features in two of the designs in this collection, with one notably recreating his iconic crossing of the Delaware River during the Revolution. Washington’s crossing of the Delaware River on December 25-26, 1776, was a pivotal moment in the American Revolutionary War. Facing dwindling morale and the potential collapse of the revolution, Washington led a surprise attack on Hessian forces in Trenton, New Jersey. Despite harsh winter conditions, including ice floes on the river, Washington and his troops made the treacherous nighttime crossing. The subsequent victory at the Battle of Trenton reinvigorated the Continental Army and the revolutionary cause. This bold maneuver demonstrated Washington’s strategic brilliance and leadership, becoming a defining moment of the war.

The Mighty Bald Eagle

America has many symbols that reflect the nation and its people, but few are as important or iconic as the bald eagle. The designs in this collection feature the bald eagle accompanied by the American flag, and even offer one design that goes outside the box with its creativity of an eagle head on a man’s body.

Overall, the bald eagle’s use in American symbolism extends far beyond its status as the national bird. Though it is prominent in governmental symbolism, it also features in American popular culture. Its widespread use has made it instantly recognizable as a symbol of American identity, appearing in everything from corporate logos to patriotic displays. The eagle’s symbolism has evolved over time, sometimes representing American expansionism and power, while in modern times often embodying environmental conservation efforts and national pride.

Propaganda at its Finest

Propaganda is not unique to modern media. As far back as the French-Indian War in North America in the 1750s, propaganda and popular slogans have been used to galvanize the public behind a specific cause. The term Join or Die arose during the French-Indian War to rally support among American colonists for the British against the imperial ambitions of France in North America. This would evolve further three decades later as the colonies rebelled against Britain.

Common American propaganda during the American Revolution employed various themes and media to galvanize support for independence and vilify British rule. Pamphlets, such as Thomas Paine’s influential “Common Sense,” used persuasive arguments to promote the revolutionary cause. Political cartoons, often featuring symbolic imagery like the British lion or American liberty figures, were widely circulated to mock British policies and leaders. Songs and poems, like “Yankee Doodle,” originally a British mockery, were repurposed as patriotic anthems. Visual propaganda included engravings of events like the Boston Massacre, often exaggerating British cruelty. Slogans such as “No taxation without representation” and “Liberty or Death” became rallying cries. Patriots also used public demonstrations, like the Boston Tea Party, as a form of propaganda through action. These diverse propaganda efforts played a crucial role in shaping public opinion, unifying the colonies, and sustaining support for the revolutionary cause throughout the long conflict.
