2018 Silver 1 oz Barbados Trident
This stunning 2018 Silver 1 oz Barbados Trident coin is produced by the U.S. based Scottsdale Mint, in cooperation with the government of Barbados. The second release of a scheduled 4-coin Barbados series, the 2018 Trident has a single design change on the reverse. The finely engraved wavy-lined background now has somewhat of a crinkled-finish nicely distinguishing it from the 2017 edition. The overall design of the coin is elegant in the setting of its elements.
Pride and Industry
The obverse features a finely detailed image of the coat of arms of this beautiful independent island nation. As with every national seal, a story of the nation’s history and pride is celebrated. This is certainly true for Barbados, a former British possession in the Caribbean. As the banner under the seal states, “Pride and Industry.” The date is split, with the “20” to the left, and “18” to the right of the centered coat of arms. Under each, is placed a small, broken trident. Encircling the bottom rim, “Barbados” is inscribed in a large, elegant typeface. The coin’s field has a vertical brushed appearance, and is completely encircled at the rim with a small beaded band.
Distinctive Trident Design
To say the reverse is stunning is an understatement. As with the obverse, the rim is encircled with the small beaded band. The focal point is the large trident head, broken clean from its staff. Derived from the nation’s flag, the broken trident symbolizes Barbados independence from Great Britain. The trident is brilliant, though its surface has the appearance of being hammered. Behind it, the background displays a new pattern, distinctive from the first edition. Two finer lines encircle the field, in which are inscribed the coin’s purity, weight, and face value.
With this being the second release of the new Barbados series, and such a low mintage of only 30,000, you really should not delay!
