2018 Silver 1 oz Fiji Mermaid Rising Proof (Colorized)
Scottsdale Mint is once again redefining convention. Produced as legal tender bullion coinage for the Republic of Fiji, this 2018 Silver 1 oz Fiji Mermaid Rising Proof (Colorized) coin design is wonderfully mesmerizing. This is the colorized proof edition of the 2018 Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) release, and it certainly deserves the high acclaim it has received! This beautiful shade of blue provides an even more stunning effect to the scene being displayed.
Mermaid Rising follows Scottsdale's immensely popular release of 2017 1 oz Fiji (Hokusai) The Great Wave, and is certain to be just as hot!
Imagine a Mermaid Rising
The reverse scene portrays a beautifully stylized mermaid, slowly rising to the water's calm blue surface. We can make out the general shape of her lithe body, including her tail. Her serene face is mostly visible, but what strikes us most is her amazing hair! It is like an undersea plant bursting forth from the ocean floor, its long strands in desperate search of sunlight.
The magic of this design is revealed both by what we see, and what our eyes strain to imagine. Once you have set your gaze to examine the coin, you find yourself hooked. Some coins are so filled with noise that it is difficult to take it all in. Not this one. It is quiet and simple. The background is the vast blue ocean. Somewhere in a tiny speck of that vastness, a stunningly beautiful mermaid rises to the surface to sun.
That tiny spec of pristine blue ocean is just off the coast of the Fiji Islands. The legend of The Mermaid of Fiji is brought vividly to life in the design of this astounding silver bullion proof coin!
Colorized Proof Finish
This 2018 Silver 1 oz Fiji Mermaid Rising Proof (Colorized) bullion coin displays the mermaid figure in stunning, proof brilliance against the blue-colorized ocean background. The inscriptions, "Mermaid Rising" and "1 oz .999 Silver" are incused in a fine, elegant typestyle.
The coin's obverse displays a large Republic of Fuji Coat of Arms, centered in the field. Encircling the rim is a nicely ornate border design, with "Fiji – 2018," inscribed at the top, and the face value at the bottom. The proof finish really highlights the detail of the design.
