Silver Two Ounces 2021 Tyrannosaurus Rex, Coin from Solomon Islands
CoinSilver Two Ounces 2021 Tyrannosaurus Rex

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 2021 2 oz Tyrannosaurus Rex Silver Coin is the first in a three-coin series named Dinosaurs of North America, which includes three coins shaped like dinosaurs that formerly roamed the world in North America.

A tyrannosaurus rex is a ferocious beast and this coin displays it perfectly. Did you know that the largest T. Rex tooth found was 30 centimetres long? This dinosaur could weigh up to 4 tons!

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 tiny 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 2021.

The portrait and the surrounding rim with the inscription are small and at the centre of the obverse. The rest represents the skeleton of the dinosaur.

On the tail to the right, the precious metal content: 2 OZ 999.9 Ag (two troy ounces of 99.99% silver).

On the left, behind the dinosaur's neck, the unique serial number of the coin.
