Silver Ounce 2021 Retrofuturism - Rocket, Coin from Solomon Islands
CoinSilver Ounce 2021 Retrofuturism - Rocket

Apart from its regular circulating coinage, Solomon Islands 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 dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to the country itself.

This coin is part of a PAMP Suisse range of specially shaped coins, and depicts a "retro" vision of the future.

Retrofuturism is an artistic movement that is influenced by futurist visions of eras past. Inspired and imagined by artists, writers, and filmmakers of the 20th century, retrofuturism has left its mark in popular culture.

The obverse of the coin shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In small letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the face value: ELIZABETH II SOLOMON ISLANDS 2 DOLLARS 2021.
