RE: The 1973 Bahama Independence Proof Issue $10 Silver Coin - Part Two of Two

Columbus was an ass-hat alright, but I think in that day and age one had to be. He was also desperately looking to gain favour with the royals by whatever means he knew how.

I really like how you decorated that bill with the skull. Spot-on!

Sort:  

The cultural expectations are different than what we have today and 'if you weren't tough you weren't gonna accomplish anything!' And if you're spending the Royal's money you better have results or you will Hang. Life is tough in 15th century Spain just as in everywhere else.
As for the Skull, it's 1 oz 0.999 fine silver made by Yeager's Poured Silver and a personal commentary on what I think of our Royals.
