CoinSilver Ten Ounces 2023 Trojan Helmet

Apart from its regular circulating coinage, Solomon Islands has authorised a number of 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 in the large ten troy ounces (10oz) of silver format. These are usually dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to the country itself.

This specially shaped coin represents a Trojan helmet.
