Silver Two Ounces 2022 America the Free - Statue of Liberty, Coin from Solomon Islands
CoinSilver Two Ounces 2022 America the Free - Statue of Liberty

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 Mint says about this coin:
"This engraved, shaped and vibrantly coloured 2oz 999.9 silver legal tender coin is the second coin in a series capturing the essence of America the Free. Overlaid on the Statue of Liberty, the American Flag waves patriotically and features iconic US landmarks on the reverse and beautifully engraved excerpts from the poetic 1903 New Colossus bronze plaque which is located on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, on the obverse.

Individually serialised with a mintage of only 4,000 coins, this is a truly special collectible."

The obverse 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 date: ELIZABETH II * SOLOMON ISLANDS * 2022 * 5 DOLLARS.

The portrait and the surrounding rim with the inscription are small and at the centre of the obverse. The rest displays text from the New Colossus bronze plaque, signed below Emma Lazarus, November 2, 1883..

In a decoration below left, the face value $5 (five dollars). Above, on the back of the torch, the unique serial number of the coin.
