CoinGold Ounce 2022 Trident

The Barbadian Dollar has been the currency of Barbados since 1973, when it replaced the Eastern Caribbean Dollar. It is normally abbreviated with the dollar sign $, or alternatively BBD $ to distinguish it from other dollar-denominated currencies.

Apart from the regular circulating coinage, the country has also authorised some foreign mints to issue commemorative and bullion coins under its jurisdiction. These are typically in standard bullion sizes, such as one ounce of gold (abbreviated as 1 oz Au, where "Au" comes from the Latin word for gold, Aurum).

The 2022 Barbados Trident 1oz Gold Coin is part of a bullion coin series by the Scottsdale Mint.

The Mint says about it:
This charming coin features a powerful image - the Barbadian trident, which is considered both apolitical and symbolic for all residents that identify in any way with their roots as Bajans. The Barbados trident is also a symbol of sovereignty, and appears in many other instances including the country's flag.

Obverse

The obverse of the coin displays at its centre the Coat of Arms of Barbados: a shield which carries two Pride of Barbados flowers (the National Flower) and a Bearded Fig Tree (ficus Citrifolia). On either side of the shield are the supporters - on the right is a dolphin symbolic of the fishing industry, and on the left a pelican, after Pelican Island, a small outcrop later incorporated into the Deep Water Harbour development. Above the shield is a helmet, above which the hand of a Bajan holding two crossed pieces of sugar cane symbolic of the sugar industry. On a ribbon below, the motto PRIDE AND INDUSTRY.

Around below, the name of the country: BARBADOS.

The date of issue 2022 is divided by the Coat of Arms. Under each part, a small trident.

The border around the rim is beaded with large dots.
