Slayed Dollar Zombucks theme trades on famous silver dollar design

The Slayed Dollar, seen here in the silver version, is a play on the Trade dollar showing a Seated Liberty. In this scene, she invites death, holding a scythe in her right hand.

The eighth and current Zombucks design, the Slayed Dollar commemorates the U.S. Mint’s Trade Dollar, a design that represented commerce and independence. 

Falling victim of the apocalypse, it now symbolizes the toll the cataclysmal world has on even the best of us — she now sits on a throne made of skeletons while holding a scythe with her weakened, decomposing body.

The Slayed Dollar “zombified” rounds will be available until July 1, 2015, in both Brilliant Uncirculated silver and copper versions. The mintage will be determined by sales figures during the period that began April 1.

Proof versions have not yet been announced.
