Gold Ounce 2021 Alpha and Omega, Coin from Samoa
CoinGold Ounce 2021 Alpha and Omega

The currency of Samoa is the Tālā, the name of which is a transliteration of the English words Dollar; it was introduced in 1967. On coinage sometimes the English word is inscribed, especially on commemorative and bullion coins not intended to circulate within the country.

Samoa has authorised some private mints to issue coins under its jurisdiction, which come in a variety of sizes - including in the popular gold ounce (1 oz gold) format, such as this one.

The Mint says about this coin:
The Alpha & Omega coin program marks the inaugural release in The Jesus Collection, an all new coin series by Scottsdale Mint. Available in a variety of sizes, metals, and finishes, these coins are not only beautiful, but are made to serve a greater purpose. This series is part of a Coins for Charity program, raising money for kids in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The shield is surmounted by a cross with rays radiating from its centre, and is superimposed on two concentric circles representing the world, and an olive branch wreath - as in the United Nations Badge. On a ribbon below, the motto FA'AVAE I LE ATUA SAMOA, meaning "God be the Foundation of Samoa".

Around above, the name of the country and the date of issue: SAMOA 2021. Below, the face value 20 TALA.
