2018 1 oz Silver Dominica Nature Isle
Following the first two releases of this extremely popular new Eastern Caribbean (EC8) island series, Scottsdale Mint proudly introduces this 2018 1 oz Silver Dominica Nature Isle BU coin. The Eastern Caribbean 2018 Bullion Coin Program (EC8) is forging ahead amidst strong international acclaim. That really shouldn't be a surprise, considering this is a fresh new international market opening to the precious metals community.
Dominica – Nature Isle of the Caribbean
The astounding natural beauty of the island nation of Dominica is poignantly captured by its common name, the "Nature Isle of the Caribbean." An actively-evolving volcanic island of the Eastern Caribbean, Dominica is part of the Lesser Antilles chain. Dominica is lush with pristine rainforests and mountainous volcano-peaks, presenting some of the most interesting hiking experiences in the region. Home of Boiling Lake, one of the largest geothermal-active lakes in the world, demonstrates the powerful on-going effects of the deep volcanic activity.
There could hardly be a more wonderful place to take in the wonder of creation and unwind from the constraints of our pressurized schedules. The design of this 2018 1 oz Silver Dominica Nature Isle reminds us of the healing beauty that is available to us in this wide-world.
Explore, Experience, then Relax
The scene featured on the coin's reverse is presented within a circular inset. Almost like a portal into another world, we capture a glimpse of this special place, the Nature Isle of the Caribbean! A beautiful young woman is shown casually reclining on a rocky outcropping looking out over the bay. The view she takes in seems somewhat serene, with the calm waters stretching to the volcanic mountains in the distance. A sense of the island's lush Caribbean vegetation is seen in the palms off to her right.
Yet, the island experience is not all serenity. As pictured by the sea-plane coming in for a landing, Dominica also welcomes tourists from around the globe to enjoy the natural beauty. Also, many are drawn here for the exhilaration of experiencing the wonders the island's famous attractions, including Waitukubuli National Trail.
The coin's overall reverse design is extremely pleasing and attractive. The outer band between the rim and the inset displays ten 5-pointed stars. The mint year 2018 is inscribed at the top. Stretching across the top, and superimposing the featured scene is inscribed "Dominica" in a very nice script. This 2018 1 oz Silver Dominica Nature Isle coin will display very well alongside the two previous EC8 releases.
The obverse will be 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.
