When it comes to state capitol buildings, the Texas State Capitol in Austin is not the tallest in the nation, but Texans take great pride in their building standing 15 feet taller than the US Capitol Building in Washington DC.
The Texas State Capitol building was designed in 1881 and building between 1882 and 1888. The building that stands today with its unique sunset red limestone is actually the third building to serve as the state government headquarters in Texas. The modern capitol building is actually on the same site of its immediate predecessor, with the second Texas capitol built in 1853, but destroyed in 1881 by the great capitol fire.
Like many capitol buildings, one of the most unique features of the Texas Capitol is its tall, imposing dome structure at the top. Viewed from inside on the main floor rotunda, gazing up at the interior of the dome youll see concentric panels that converge as they gradually rise toward the domes center point, where an 8-foot Lone Star is set in the middle.
On the obverse of the 10 oz Texas Mint Silver Bar youll find the image of the domes interior, just as viewed from the floor of the rotunda, in the upper-center space of the design field. Below that are engravings of the weight, purity, and metal content of the bar, as well as the iconic outline of the state of Texas.
Flip the bar over and the reverse will showcase a repeating pattern. In this instance of this bar, that pattern has the outline of the state of Texas captured repeatedly in horizontal lines all across the face of the bar. The 10 oz Texas Mint Silver Bar is part of a greater series that features the same design on 1 oz and 100 oz bars for sale.
