This BOLD Collector Set contains one each of these three stunning coins produced by Scottsdale Mint, featuring a brilliant Trident against three uniquely different background patterns.The Silver 1 oz Barbados Trident coin design was first introduced in 2017 by U.S. based Scottsdale Mint, in cooperation with the government of Barbados. The inaugural release was highly praised for the coin’s elegant design as well as it’s stunning production excellence. Each year’s release has maintained the same overall design with the exception of the reverse background pattern. This has been very well received by collectors of the series.
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 it, “Pride and Industry.” The numerals of the release date are split, to the left and right of the centered coat of arms. Under each, is placed a small, trident head. 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. The background displays a new pattern for each release. Two finer lines encircle the field, in which are inscribed the coin’s purity, weight, and face value.
This Barbados Trident 3-Coin Collector Set features one of the finest of the island series offerings produced by Scottsdale Mint. Whether you are just starting to collect series such as this, or purchasing as a gift, you will definitely be pleased with these three Barbados Trident coins!2017 Silver 1 oz Barbados Trident2018 Silver 1 oz Barbados Trident2019 Silver 1 oz Barbados Trident
