CoinSilver Ounce 2021 Shrek - Christmas

The Fijian Dollar has been the currency of Fiji since 1969, when it replaced the pre-decimal Fijian Pound. It is normally abbreviated with the dollar sign $, or alternatively FJ$ 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 silver (abbreviated as 1 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum).

Shrek debuted in 2001 as one of the first computer-animated comedy films set in a fantasy universe. The film focused on the green ogre known as Shrek and was somewhat based on a 1990 fairy tale book written by William Steig with the same title. The film included the talented voicing of actors like Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, and John Lithgow for the major characters in the film.

As the franchise continued with future films in 2004, 2007, and 2010, more characters were added while other characters, like Donkey, were expanded upon with greater roles than the original films. In this silver coin design, you will find three of the main characters from the franchise coming together to celebrate Christmas.

Obverse
Fiji / Silver Ounce 2021 Shrek - Christmas - 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.

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

Around above, the name of the country and the date of issue: FIJI 2021; around below, the face value 50 CENTS.

The reverse design shows three of the main characters from the franchise, decorating a Christmas tree. Shrek is the base of the character "tower", with Donkey standing on his head and outstretched hand. On Donkey's nose, Puss in Boots reaches out to put a star atop the Christmas tree. There are several presents scattered around the base of the tree.

Above the figures, the DREAMWORKS SHREK logo.
