Silver Ounce 2012 Muhammad Ali, Coin from Fiji
CoinSilver Ounce 2012 Muhammad Ali

Apart from its regular circulating coinage, Fiji has authorised a number of private 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 - typically, one ounce of silver (abbreviated as 1 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum). These are usually made using innovative techniques and are dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to Fiji itself.

The Mint says about this coin:
He is the greatest boxer of all time. The New Zealand Mint is celebrating the 70th birthday of Muhammad Ali by releasing a limited edition, legal tender, collectible coin in his honour. Each Muhammad Ali set comes with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity issued by New Zealand Mint. The certificate also details Ali sporting career and displays iconic imagery of the sporting great.

Obverse
Fiji / Silver Ounce 2012 Muhammad Ali - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin shows the crowned bust of Queen Elizabeth II, facing right (her effigy by Raphael David Maklouf known as the "Third Portrait"). The Queen is wearing the royal diadem which she wears on her way to and from the State Opening of Parliament, a pearl necklace and earrings.

Normally, the designer's initials are on the neck truncation; however, they are not displayed here.

The legend of Queen Elizabeth II, face value and date of issue are inscribed around the rim: ELIZABETH II · FIJI · TWO DOLLARS · 2012 ·.

Given that Queen Elizabeth was the monarch of Fiji only until 1987, it is not clear why her effigy and legend are displayed on the coin.
