2018 Silver 1 oz Cayman Islands Marlin (5-Coin Pack)
Scottsdale Mint’s, in association with the government of the Cayman Islands is proud to announce the second annual release of Silver 1 oz Cayman Islands Marlin coin series. The tremendous public response to the inaugural 2017 release demonstrated just how popular sport fishing continues to be throughout the world.
Feel the Exhilaration!
That’s really not so hard to understand, considering just how exhilarating the sport is! Blue Marlin fishing is certainly one of the most popular, and the Cayman Islands is a favorite destination. Both with the blue marlin’s size and aggressive strength, these billfish represent some of the most exciting fights an experienced angler encounters. One of the blue marlin’s most well-known defensive tactics is their amazing acrobatic flights, breaching the water’s surface, attempting to break free of the line.
This high-energy action scene is captured on the featured reverse design of this stunning coin. The 2018 Silver 1 oz Cayman Islands Marlin coin maintains the theme of the series. The amazing design is unchanged from its 2017 edition. The low mintage, impeccable production quality, and the magnificent design all come together into a remarkable bullion series from Scottsdale Mint!
The obverse of this stunning .999 silver bullion coin displays a right-facing profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The portrait is superimposed against a background of ocean waves. Encircling the portrait inset, is a wide band of finely engraved wavy lines, also replicating the sense of the waves, which surround this chain of three beautiful islands.
The feature image of the reverse design is possibly one of the most spectacular Blue Marlin engravings to grace a coin. Jumping high out of the rough ocean waves, this beautiful creature’s strength and agility is magnificently displayed!
The marlin’s long body is arched in mid-flight above the water. With its mouth open, full attention is directed to the long sharp beak. This amazing scene will immediately bring back that exhilaration you felt fighting your first marlin catch to the boat!
The inset marlin scene is accented by the broad band encircling it, which is filled with finely engraved wavy lines, as also on the obverse. The inside circle of the band is a thin nautical rope. The Royal Cypher of Queen Elizabeth II, surmounted by St. Edward’s Crown is inset by a thin-line circle at the coin’s top. Inscriptions include “2018 Marlin, 1 oz 999 Silver.”
