Silver Three Grams (3 g), Coin Type from Samoa - detailed information

Silver Three Grams (3 g), Coin Type from Samoa (issued 2022 - )
Coin TypeSilver Three Grams (3 g)

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 a three grams of silver "coin note" format - with a rectangular shape, and very thin to emulate a banknote.

The coins listed below are considered Non-Circulating Legal-Tender (NCLT), i.e. issued at prices much higher than the intrinsic value of their precious metal content, and targeted towards collectors who appreciate them for their artistic values.
