CoinSilver Ounce 2019 Castaway Seashells - Scallop

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:
You have heard the story that when you hold a shell to your ear, you can hear the sound of the ocean? With this amazing new seashell coin from the Reserve Bank of Fiji you just might just hear the sound of money - because it is actual $2 legal tender currency! Struck using 1oz of pure silver, this new coin is the second release in the series and uses state-of-the-art minting techniques so advanced and so realistic, if it wasn't pure silver, you would swear it was a real seashell.

Obverse
Fiji / Silver Ounce 2019 Castaway Seashells - Scallop - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin shows at its centre the Coat of Arms of Fiji, as adopted in 1908 by a Royal Warrant, consisting of a shield divided quarterly by the Cross of St. George and charged with lion at the top, supported by two Fijian warriors, one on each side - one clutching a spear and one holding a totokia club, and topped with a takia - a traditional Fijian outrigger canoe, in full sail.

The objects on the Coat of Arms carry cultural, political, and regional meanings. The Cross of St. George and the lion at the top represent the United Kingdom, the former colonial power that ruled over Fiji. The cacao pod held in the lion's paw, along with the sugarcane, coconut palm and bananas occupying three of the four quadrants, represent the country's natural resource. The bottom left quadrant contains a dove that symbolises peace.

At the bottom is the country's motto: Rerevaka na kalou ka doka na Tui; translated from Fijian: Fear God and honour the Queen.

Around above, the name of the country and the date of issue: FIJI 2019; around below, the face value 2 DOLLARS.

On the left and right, separated by the Coat of Arms, the precious metal content: 1 oz .999 FINE SILVER (one troy ounce of 99.9% silver).
