It’s hard to know which is better known—the man called the “King of the Cowboys,” or the gun he carried in both comic books and on the Silver Screen.

Whether you believe the answer is Roy Rogers or his Colt .45 Single Action Army revolver doesn’t really matter. Both are indelible in the minds of many Americans. Many of today’s leaders spent their youth watching Roy Rogers, alongwith his wife Dale Evans and his trusty horse Trigger,promote honesty, courage, faith and fair play. Hecombinedon-screen adventures with real-life inspirational messages, all while carrying one of the guns that won the West.

If he had lived, Roy Rogers would have turned 100 years old on Nov. 5, 2011, and in celebration of this, America Remembers has issued the Roy Rogers Centennial Tribute Revolver.

The Roy Rogers Centennial Tribute Revolver is a Colt .45 Single Action Army, the very gun carried by so many of the great western heroes. On one side of the cylinderis a depiction of Roy Rogers with Dale Evans; the other side shows Roy strumming his guitar. Both images are 24-karat gold. The grips are checkered faux ivory andthe hardware is gold. The revolver alsocomes with a contoured display case.

Only 100 of these tribute revolvers honoring two people who always rode the trail with courage and grace at the price will be offered.
