Black Flag Series
Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, pirates ruled the seven seas, with each ship displaying a unique "black flag" to announce their arrival and make clear mercy would be given to those who surrendered. Now, The Perth Mint has created an APMEXclusive® Gold and Silver Series celebrating some of the most famous of these fearsome historical figures. The second release features The Royal Fortune and its notorious captain, Black Bart. Only 100 of these 1 oz .9999 fine Gold, 500 5 oz .9999 fine Silver, and 15,000 1 oz Silver coins are available, exclusively at APMEX.Shop Now
Next In Series: The Royal Fortune
Captain Bartholomew Roberts is considered one of the most successful pirates of all time. Black Bart, as he’s more famously known, holds the record for most ships successfully plundered by a pirate in history. In 1720, he won a French vessel somewhere off the coast of Newfoundland and named it Royal Fortune. He commanded his crew of 157 men to mount the ship with 42 cannons, making it more than ready to fight against any Royal Navy ship. The infamy of the Royal Fortune finally ended in February 1722, when Black Bart was killed in battle.Shop Now

First In Series
One of the most famous and revered pirates of all time was Blackbeard, who is said to have captured more than 40 merchant ships and has led 300 men at the height of his career. His ship, Queen Anne’s Revenge, is still known today as one of the most notorious vessels of its time. This release was highly sought after and sold out.
