Silver Ounce 2022 Lady Justice, Coin from Gibraltar
CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Lady Justice

Gibraltar is a small British Overseas Territory located at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula, bordered to the north by Spain. Its currency is the Gibraltar Pound, which is locally interchangeable with the Pound Sterling, to which it is pegged at par; however, the Gibraltar Pound is legal tender only in Gibraltar and not in the United Kingdom.

The territory has also authorised some mints to issue commemorative and bullion coins under its jurisdiction. These latter are usually in standard bullion sizes, such as one ounce of silver - designated as 1 oz Ag, where Ag is abbreviated from Argentum, the Latin word for silver.

This coin is part of a Scottsdale Mint range of Gibraltar bullion coins, and the second issue in the Lady Justice series.

The Mint says about it:
The figure of Lady Justice has been struck into coinage throughout world history, with one of the earliest examples appearing in the Roman Empire around 100 AD. The ideal of pure, impartial justice is timeless, and a concept people have sought, debated, and fought to preserve over the timeline of humanity.

Scottsdale Mint is proud to announce a new coin series that enshrines the concept of Justice in pure gold and silver. The 2022 Gibraltar Legal Tender coin program is comprised of four coins in two different finishes and metal types.

The reverse of each coin features a classic engraving of Lady Justice, blindfolded and holding a sword in her right hand, and scales in her left. The Latin phrase “fides et justitia” accompanies the artwork. The reverse bears the Gibraltar Coat of Arms (beautiful artwork in its own right) as well as weight, purity, content, and denomination value.

Obverse

The obverse of the coin displays at its centre the Coat of Arms of the Government of Gibraltar. It incorporates the Royal Arms of the United Kingdom, being a shield which is quartered, depicting in the first and fourth quarters the three passant guardant lions of England; in the second, the rampant lion and double tressure flory-counterflory of Scotland; and in the third, a harp for Ireland. The crest is a statant guardant lion wearing St Edward's Crown, himself on another representation of that crown standing on a knight's helmet. The sinister (left) supporter is a likewise crowned English lion; the dexter (right), a Scottish unicorn.

The motto of English monarchs, DIEU ET MON DROIT (God and my Right), which has descended to the present royal family, is in a ribbon below, while a Garter circlet which surrounds the shield is inscribed with the Order of the Garter's motto, HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE (from old French: Shame on he who thinks evil), partly obscured by the supporters.

Below the lower ribbon, the badge of Gibraltar - an escutcheon featuring a three-towered castle under which hangs a key.

Around above, the name of the territory: GIBRALTAR. Divided by the lion above the crown, the date of issue 2022. Around left and around right, the precious metal content: 1 TROY OUNCE 999 FINE SILVER. Around below, the nominal face value 1 POUND.
