Silver Ounce 2022 Fender Stratocaster, Coin from Solomon Islands
CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Fender Stratocaster

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.

The Fender Stratocaster Silver Coin is part of coin series from PAMP Suisse, which features coins shaped as the objects they depict.

The Mint says about it:
Established in 1946, Fender has become a cultural icon in its own right and champions The Spirit of Rock-n-Roll for all music lovers, from young guitarists just learning to play to legendary musicians. In Fender's early days the right type of tint and varnish was hard to come by. Thanks to the very same paint used on the famous 1956 Chevy, Surf Green became one of the fan-favourites for the Stratocaster. This 1oz pure silver guitar shaped coin captures this vibrant retro colour perfectly, a nod to the Stratocaster originals!

Individually serialised and housed in a custom capsule this coin is limited to a mintage of 6,000 pieces worldwide.

Obverse
Solomon Islands / Silver Ounce 2022 Fender Stratocaster - obverse photo

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 tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley). The portrait is small and is in the left part of the obverse.

On the right, along the neck of the guitar, the monarch's legend and the face value: ELIZABETH II · SOLOMON ISLANDS · 2 DOLLARS. In the upper right part of the body, the date of issue 2022; in the lower right, the unique serial number of the coin.
