This seafaring series on pirates is proving popular plunder for young collectors.  The fourth coin features Black Bart (Bartholomew Roberts) who was the most successful pirate of his era.

Born in Wales in 1682, Roberts went to sea at the age of 13 and after a poorly-paid career as a seaman he converted to piracy.  Famous for his navigational skills Black Bart plundered shipping relentlessly off West Africa, South America, Newfoundland and in the Caribbean, reportedly capturing over 400 ships! 

Black Bart made a gallant figure; he wore silk waistcoats, a red feather in his hat, a gold chain with a diamond cross hanging from it, a sword in one hand and two pairs of pistols slung over his shoulders.  Unlike other pirates, however, Roberts preferred the taste of tea to rum! 

The pirate world was shocked when the ‘invincible’ Black Bart was blasted by grapeshot and killed while engaging an English man-o’-war in 1722.  The crew followed his wishes, wrapped his body in sailcloth and cast him overboard.
