Silver Ounce 2022 Dice, Coin from Fiji
CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Dice

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:
Struck in 1oz of fine silver, this unique collectible piece and fully functional dice comes in an elegant presentation case perfect for collectors and for gift-giving. The unique Tiger design marks the 2022 Lunar Year of the Tiger.

Obverse
Fiji / Silver Ounce 2022 Dice - 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: 1oz .999 FINE SILVER (one troy ounce of 99.9% silver).

Around above, the name of the country and the date of issue: FIJI 2022; around below, the face value 1 DOLLAR.

The "obverse" is in the place of the number 1 on the dice, with the value of 1 dollar representing the number instead of its usual representation.
