CoinSilver Two Ounces 2021 Fish of the Second Chakra

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.

The 2oz Pure Silver ish of the 2nd Chakra Coin is part of a series by PAMP Suisse based on the Seven Chakras by artist Phil Lewis.

The Mint says about it:
Ideologies of the chakras have existed for centuries and the depth of wisdom surrounding them is immense. Phil Lewis has based his artistic interpretations of each chakra in this series following a random order depending on what inspired him at a moment in time. The first issue of a 7-coin series, this coin is titled Fish of the 2nd Chakra and portrays two elegant Koi fish entwined in an aquatic dance of balance within the cycles of change. Also known as the sacral chakra, the 2nd chakra is located just below the navel at the centre of our lower belly and is commonly associated with creativity, sensuality, and emotions. As the centre of our feelings, the 2nd chakra is often represented by the flow and flexibility of water.

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 · 5 DOLLARS · 2 OZ AG 999.9 · 2021.

The inscription also includes the precious metal content; 2 OZ 999.9 Ag means "one troy ounce of 99.99% silver". The date of issue is above, and the unique serial number of the coin is below.
