Silver Five Ounces (5 oz), Coin Type from Solomon Islands (issued 2020 - )
Coin TypeSilver Five Ounces (5 oz)

Apart from its regular circulating coinage, Solomon Islands has authorised a number of mints to issue collector coins in precious metals, which are legal tender in the country but are not intended for general circulation. Many of them are in standard bullion sizes - including five ounces of silver (abbreviated as 5oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum). These are usually dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to the country itself.

Listed below are coins considered "premium" (Non-Circulating Legal Tender) - i.e. released at prices significantly higher than their intrinsic value.
