The obverse features a horse and rider galloping across the rugged terrain. This round pays homage to the Pony Express, a horse-and-rider relay system briefly used to deliver mail cross-country in the mid-1800s. The horse is equipped with a specially designed saddlebag used to store and carry mail, known as a mochila. The inscription “PONY EXPRESS” is seen at the bottom.
The reverse features the classic scene of a sleepy Wild West town, complete with a saloon and hotel. Horses are seen hitched out front. An inscription reads “ONE OUNCE .999 FINE COPPER.”
