Coat of Arms of Anguilla
Anguilla / Gold Ounce 2020 Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms of Anguilla is a heraldic device consisting of a shield charged with three orange dolphins leaping over the sea. It was granted by a Royal Warrant on 27 November 1990. The shield is also featured on the flag of the country.

The colours and objects on the coat of arms carry cultural, political, and regional meanings. The white background epitomises peace and tranquillity. The blue at the bottom evokes the surrounding Caribbean Sea, as well as faith, youth and hope. The three dolphins symbolise unity, strength and endurance. This is also the motto of the territory. The circle they are arranged in represents continuity.

The Coat of Arms of Anguilla is not shown on the obverse of the coins of the country, which show the effigy of the monarch instead. Occasionally, it is displayed on the reverse of commemorative coins.
