2019 ZOMBUCKS THE DYING EAGLE 1 OZ .999 FINE SILVER ROUND
(Please note these coins have blemishes or spotting from the start)
Zombucks Dying Eagle is an infected version of the Flying Eagle Cent that was designed by U.S. Mint engraver, James Longacre. The one-cent coins were produced by the U.S. Mint in 1856 and circulated from 1857 through 1858. The original design features a graceful bald eagle in flight, but it was quickly retired in 1859. Augustus Saint-Gaudens said the flying eagle image at that time “is by all odds the best design on any American coin.”
The once majestic bird now soars on the obverse of each 1 ounce silver Dying Eagle, having fallen victim of the relentless apocalypse. Its decomposing body is weak, bone and atrophied muscle are exposed where beautiful plumage once existed – many feathers fall from the eagle’s carcass on the design. "DYING EAGLE", "Z FIFTY" and "2019" are inscribed.
