Silver Half Ounce (1/2 oz), Bullion, Coin Type from Samoa (issued 2020 - )
Coin TypeSilver Half Ounce (1/2 oz), Bullion

The currency of Samoa is the Tālā, the name of which is a transliteration of the English words Dollar; it was introduced in 1967. On coinage sometimes the English word is inscribed, especially on commemorative and bullion coins not intended to circulate within the country.

Samoa has authorised some private mints to issue coins under its jurisdiction, which come in a variety of sizes - including in the silver half ounce (1/2 oz silver) format, denominated usually as 1 dollar. Like any bullion coin though, their actual value is unrelated to the face value, and is based primarily on the metal content and the spot price of that metal on the commodities markets.

The coins listed below are "bullion", i.e. issued at prices comparable to the intrinsic value of their precious metal content.
