CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Platinum Jubilee

The Cayman Islands is a self-governing British Overseas Territory, the largest by population, in the western Caribbean Sea. The territory has its own currency, the Cayman Islands Dollar, in which the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA) issues a variety of circulating coins and banknotes.

The government also authorises some foreign mints to strike commemorative and bullion coins under its jurisdiction, for collector's purposes or for investment. Many of these are in standard bullion sizes, including one ounce (1oz) of silver.

This coin celebrates the Queen's Platinum Jubilee (70 years since the accession to the throne of Queen Elizabeth II).

The obverse of the coin displays the Coat of Arms of the Cayman Islands, which consists of a shield, a crested helm and the motto. Three stars, representing each of the three inhabited Islands (Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac), are set in the lower two-thirds of the shield. The stars rest on wavy bands representing the sea. In the top third of the shield is a lion passant guardant (walking with the further forepaw raised and the body seen from the side), representing Britain. Above the shield is a turtle on a coil of rope. Behind the turtle is a pineapple. The turtle represents the seafaring history; the rope, its traditional thatch-rope industry; and the pineapple, its ties with Jamaica.

The islands’ motto, HE HATH FOUNDED IT UPON THE SEAS is on a ribbon below the shield. This line, a verse from Psalm 24 Verse 2, acknowledges the Christian heritage of the country, as well as its ties to the sea.

The background of the centre is textured with thin lines radiating from the shield. The date of issue 2022 is divided by the Coat of Arms.
