CoinSilver Two Ounces 2021 Dice

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 two ounces of silver (abbreviated as 2 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.

LPM says about this:
We are pleased to present the world's first legal tender dice shaped coin! Struck in 2oz of fine silver, this unique collectible piece and fully functional dice comes in an elegant presentation case perfect for collectors and for gift-giving.

Obverse

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, the date of issue and the value: ELIZABETH II SOLOMON ISLANDS 5 DOLLARS 2oz Ag 999 2021.

Above the date is the precious metal content; 2oz Ag 999 means "two troy ounces of 99.9% silver".

The "obverse" is in the place of the number 5 on the dice, with the value of 5 dollars representing the number instead of its usual representation.
