Silver Lionfish coin, minted with 1 ounce in 2019 by the Scottsdale Mint
The pterois, commonly known as lionfish, is one of the most poisonous marine fish found in the Pacific. It is nicknamed the lion because of its dorsal fins, which are very similar in shape to a cat's beard. In addition, it is brown, something that accentuates the resemblance and helps it camouflage itself with its surroundings.
The design of the animal is on the cross, which has a fairly simple structure: bordering on the fish, we find the characteristics of the coin separated by small lines. Right in the centre of the coin, the lionfish, which appears with a great level of detail, with all its fins in different shades to differentiate its parts and on a coral reef. In addition, on the bottom, there are degraded motifs that give the sensation of marine depth
The edge of the coin is single-striped, formed by small bas-relief lines arranged regularly.
The cross on the coin depicts the country's coat of arms, made up of the nation's most important symbols: inside it is the national flower and a bearded fig tree (which gives the country its name) and outside, guarding it, a dolphin of azure and gullet representing the fishing industry and a pelican. A helmet crowns the coat of arms and under it the country's motto, "Pride and Industry".
The name of the country appears above the coat of arms, the year of issue on two tridents on either side and the face value of the coin (US$1) below. The coin is 38.6 millimetres in diameter, weighs 31.10 grams and is minted from 999.9 grade silver.
