The creativity that fuels the M6 Metals brand is inspired by Indigenous roots, everyday experiences, local influences and current social trends. This philosophy mixed with the unfortunate events of COVID-19 was the inspiration for the "Feeling Lucky" silver art bar.
We don’t really know much about extraterrestrial beings, hypothetically they do exist. The association with U.F.O. and alleged abductions keep us believing they do exist and walk amongst us today. The phenomenon of alien abduction or the stories of aliens kidnapping human beings for experimental purposes. Medical examinations of the human body or interspecies breeding are a few of the known claims. Whomever they are or their extraterrestrial origin, the actions of their piracy keeps us interested in knowing the truth. They exist !
More than a code of silence, rather an attitude or way of life for many. Don't break your commitment to your family, friends, co-workers, and partners in crime. A virtue of honor, respect, and loyalty. What is said at the table is kept confidential. A tactic to deflect unwanted attention to yourself, your partners, and family. Generally pertaining to personal and family honor, and the righteous self rule of no government intervention. Living life under the rose with an attitude that adopts the mentality without evidence, I’m protected by the strength of others.
Lucha, which stands for fight, is inspired by the freestyle wrestlers of Mexico. The authentic style and extravagant wardrobes and distinguishing masks are the trademark of a Lucha. Their iconic presence is both vintage and modern, through the replica masks that can easily be found for sale. Our design for an art bar captures the essence of the Lucha!
Republica de Plata
The number one silver producing country in the world is Mexico. Mining and producing over 6,300 metric tons of this precious metal. The United States leads all other countries in silver consumption. Used for production, medical, and personal wealth. These two countries dominate the silver space and represent a “Silver Republic”.
Viva La Vida
Live Life, Celebrate Life, Hooray for Life, is a statement symbolized by many cultures where life is considered the most precious commodity. A recipe on how to live life and a reminder of “Momento Mori”, to live life to its fullest, without hate, prejudice, or guilt. Viva on its own is a strong expression “Long Live” !
Plata No. 6
The Plata No. 6 bar is its own COA and bar in one. The 6th bar in the M6 line-up. The inspiration for this bar is simple, there are six immediate members of the M6 Family and our love for all silver variations worldwide is the foundation of the M6 family. Plata latin for silver, with origins to ancient greek πλατύς (platús, “wide”), because silver was often made into sheets.
Lettre de Marque
During the age of sail, when a privateer had motive to attack or capture vessels of a nation at war, the government issued this license to authorize the attack or capture. Known as a Letter of Marque. The details of the vessel, tonnage, crew, weapons and treasures were recorded. The ownership of the vessels were often split into 1/8 shares and the “prizes” were assessed and valued with profits split between the government and owners, the captain and crew.
Strength, bravery, luck, and honesty symbolize the meaning for this bar. Three important symbols stand out, Rooster, Wild Pig, and the Skull. These represent important indivuduals to the M6 brand and will never be forgotten.
The Sea Shepherd was inspired by an original M6 design in 2019. The new design sheds light on the events of 2020, as we learned how to navigate the treacherous sea with one mission, safety for all "the crew" a.k.a. "Family". The Captain and The First Mate learning to steer the ship and setting course for safety, at times had to parley disputes to avoid being becalmed. The Captain giving the order to raise the red flag towards the enemy of 2020, "Give No Quarter". Ahoy 2021 !!!
We beleive in all things free as such the M6 brand has always been free spirited and liberal. As a numismatic collector of Libertads and American Silver Eagles, these coins inspired the artwork for this art bar. Specifically honoring all families that have enjoyed the freedom of this great country and to those whom look towards their personal future.
There is at least 1% of pirate DNA in all of us. That theory is the inspiration for the artwork. "Take Everything and Give Nothing Back" which is a statement for every modern day pirate treasure collector. We enjoy collecting and holding all types of precious metals. A pirate does not care what type or how the treasure looks, only cares about "taking it" ! 🏴☠️☠️🏴☠️
The Organic life is real and for many it is not a lifestyle, rather a means to a healthier life. As such, being a silver collector and understanding the mining of silver it is only fitting that we give homage to this precious metal; "AG". Organic Silver is the purest form of silver without added alloys. The metal found in the Earth's crust in the pure, as an alloy with gold and other metals and other minerals. Most silver is produced as a byproduct of copper, gold, lead, and zinc refining. Silver is also known for its native antimicrobial properties, which has been shown to kill bacteria, fungi, and certain viruses. Known as the metal of emotions, loving as well as healing and is used to bring patience and healing to the holder. Silver stackers this is why you love your silver stack!
A symbol of freedom for those who live life without any prejudice. Never worry what others think or say. Having the freedom to do what you want. Power, clarity, strength and perspective are key attributes of the Free Bird.
