2018 1 oz Silver Saint Lucia ‑ Flamingos
For the final release in the popular Eastern Caribbean (EC8) island series, Scottsdale Mint proudly presents this beautiful 2018 1 oz Silver Saint Lucia ‑ Flamingos BU coin. This is likely to become one of your most favorite designs of the entire remarkable 8-coin series.
As we all know, it is one thing to see the early mock-ups of an upcoming release. It is altogether another thing to actually receive the coin and hold it in your hand, studying its every nuance. You did this very thing with each edition, starting with that spectacular first release of the Antigua & Barbuda Rum Runner. From that point forward, there was no turning back!
A Caribbean Island Paradise
The stunningly beautiful Eastern Caribbean island of Saint Lucia became an independent state in 1979, and entered as a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. Now a member of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank group, this wonderful bullion coin release is made possible through partnership of ECCB with Scottsdale Mint.
Blessed with a geography and climate conducive to a natural habitat of large numbers of bird species, this coin celebrates one of the most easily identifiable and beloved species, the flamingo.
The obverse is common to all eight EC8 2018 releases. The inset features the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Distinctive laurels of evergreen shrubs frame the portrait on either side, nearly filling the center inset. A narrow band encircles the rim, which includes the inscriptions, “EASTERN CARIBBEAN CENTRAL BANK” at the top, and “1 oz .999 SILVER . QUEEN ELIZABETH II . 2 DOLLARS” at the bottom rim.
The reverse features a pair of flamingos, standing facing each other, huddled closely together. Their heads are tenderly touching, forming the appearance of a heart. The design is presented as a wonderful impressionistic style oil painting. The background is filled with very nice texturing. Inscriptions included are displayed in a flowing script with “St. Lucia” at the top rim, and “2018” at the bottom.
We believe you will agree that this St. Lucia Flamingos edition is a wonderful concluding release of this highly-popular series. There can be no doubt that the low mintage of 25,000, coupled with this being the series finale, that they will move very quickly.
