CoinSilver Two Ounces 2022 Crusader Knight Helmet

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 - including, two ounces of silver (abbreviated as 2 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum). These are usually made using "smartminting" or other innovative techniques and are dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to Fiji itself.

The 2022 2 oz Fiji Ancient Warriors - Crusader Knight Helmet Shaped 999 Silver Antiqued Coin is the third release in the Ancient Warrior series of specially shaped coins.

Obverse
Fiji / Silver Two Ounces 2022 Crusader Knight Helmet - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin shows, within a circle, 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: 2oz .999 FINE SILVER (two troy ounces of 99.9% silver).

Above, the name of the country and the date of issue: FIJI 2022; below, the face value 2 DOLLARS.
