CoinSilver Two Ounces 2022 Ram of the Third 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 Ram of the 3rd 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 3rd Chakra is the core of our personality, identity and will-power. Its energy focuses on transforming inertia into action, allowing us to meet challenges and move forward confidently.

For this coin engraved and with vibrant colour artist Phil Lewis has tapped into the power of the ram to represent the 3rd Chakra. The ram asserts its strength of character to creatively achieve breakthroughs. Its power and determination to overcome adversity are an inspiration to us all in these challenging times. Individually serialised with a mintage limited to 1,500 coins worldwide.

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 and the face value: ELIZABETH II · SOLOMON ISLANDS · 5 DOLLARS · 2 OZ AG 999.9 · 2022.

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