I previously showed a Vintage Draped Bust Silver Round by SilverTowne Mint.

SilverTowne Mint produced a series of silver bars depicting carriages and wagons during the 1980s. This is one of them.

Vintage SilverTowne Mint Covered Wagon

The silver bar depicts travel on the Oregon Trail, historical trail in the United States. In the 19th century, it was one of the two primary emigration routes to the American West.

A common covered wagon used by emigrants heading west in the 19th century was the prairie schooner. It was the preferred car on the Oregon Trail. The white canvas bonnet of the wagon, which from a distance resembled the sailing ship known as a schooner, gave rise to the nickname prairie schooner.

Since prairie schooners had no suspension and the roads and trails at the time were rough, most people on long treks preferred to walk alongside the wagon or ride a horse (if they had one) rather than endure the wagon’s constant jolting and lurching. Ox teams were not controlled with reins, so the driver walked alongside the animals, using a whip and spoken commands to guide them. The usual average rate of travel with such wagons on the Oregon Trail was about 2 miles (3.2 km) per hour, and the average distance covered each day was about 15 to 20 miles (24 to 32 km). This was an easy pace for both the pioneers and their animals. 1

SilverTowne Mint started out as a modest coin shop in a rural Indiana town in 1949.

It has grown to become one of the biggest and most reputable dealers of gold, silver, and numismatics in the United States.

There was an obscure western tale of a peculiar pair of pioneering women in one of the many wagon trains that pressed westward, one was an expert gun slinger and the other...

... led to a founding of a State. 🤔 Or was it a company?

Always, with love 🤗🌺❤️

Something to Ponder and to be Happy about Stacking!

If you have 6000+ oz of #Silver, you are already a millionaire and don't even know it.

Claire and Jenny From the Outlander series.

As long as you have set aside enough assets you can retire anytime you want. If I were to retire I've got a public Canada Pension plan, Municipal Pension plan and an RRSP plus a monthly rental income, 4 passive income streams. When a Reset happens, we'll have to rely on our real money savings.
The earlier gold and silver moonshots, the earlier we can retire. 50 is a good goal.
Feels good sleeping in.

It’s hard to even imagine the hardship that these pioneers endured @silversaver888!😮
Traveling at only 15 to 20 miles a day, can you even imagine driving a car 15 to 20 miles a day and stopping …….🙄

I can't imagine how hard a life and that trip must have been! Back when we lived in Colorado, we used to take the railroad bed to the top. Up towards the top, there was still a rock bed which had a sign that it was a wagon trail long ago. Looking at that, not only was it a hard life and trip, but a dangerous one as well! It wasn't very wide and the drop off! Oh my!

The silver bar is very nice, and right up my ally! Thanks for sharing sis! Much love!🤗😘😍💕🌸 !LADY !LUV !PIMP

We are fortunate to have been born when we were. At least we did not have to endure so many hardships. I watch so many films of the old west, I cannot imagine the difficulties a woman has to go through.
!LUV ya sis 🤗😘😍 and thank you for your patience.
