2018 1 oz Silver Grenada – Spice Isle of the Caribbean
With this remarkable 2018 1 oz Silver Grenada – Spice Isle of the Caribbean release, Scottsdale Mint proudly extends the extremely popular Eastern Caribbean Island (EC8) 8-coin series. Each of the previous releases have received the well-deserved acclaim of the global precious metals investment and collector communities. Every additional EC8 coin design continues to raise the bar higher, and this fourth release of Grenada is no exception. This is an incredibly fresh addition to this active series.
Grenada – Pristine Beaches, Culture, and Spice!
Grenada is one of the finest and most popular tourist destinations in the Eastern Caribbean. Whether your interests include the pristine white sand beaches or the stunningly beautiful coral reefs perfect for scuba exploration, the water recreation opportunities are amazing! The centuries old historical landmarks and wonderful cultural events also provide insight into the mix of cultures of these warm and gracious islanders that make Grenada such a special place. Grenada is not only referred to as the Spice Isle of the Caribbean because of its centuries of international spice trade (primarily nutmeg). It can also be said that a week spent on this island can even bring a bit of spice back into your life!
Intriguing Diving Paradise
The coin’s reverse depicts a beautifully intriguing underwater scene featuring a pair of scuba divers. The two are shown as silhouettes against a backdrop of the vast ocean depths off the Grenada coast. They are descending ever deeper toward an ancient shipwreck. The details of the ship have long ago been erased by the deep ocean current. Yet, the remains of a tall mast still stand. A large coral reef fills the foreground, which is very nicely detailed.
The overall design is one of the most pleasing of the EC8 series to date. It displays a great sense of depth of field. The detailed coral reef in the foreground gives way to the first diver in the near distance. Next, the ship’s mast appears to stand half the distance from the second diver. This has the effect of pulling you into the scene to appreciate more of its detail. The inscription “GRENADA” is arched at the top rim, with “2018” immediately under it.
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.
This highly-popular series has a very limited mintage of only 25,000 per release. Its fresh design is also a stunning addition to the overall series. You should not delay!
