1 oz silver coin of the Montserrat Oriole, minted by Scottsdale Mint in 2020.
The island of Montserrat is one of the British Overseas Territories. It is located in the Caribbean, in what is known as the Lesser Antilles. It is not an overly popular territory, but its wildlife is well known among animal lovers.
Its national animal par excellence, the Montserrat Oriole, is well known for its beauty, accentuated by the combination of its yellow and black plumage and the endearing sound it makes when it flies.
Scottsdale Mint, in its strategy to create the largest animal bullion collection in the world, has done justice to its beauty on this coin.
The animal's design is found on the cross. It has two distinct parts: an outer side, which features the country and the name of the coin; and the inner side, which features the animal against the background of the island it inhabits.
The bird is perched on a branch that runs diagonally across the bottom of the coin. The level of detail is quite good, as evidenced by the bird's plumage and beak. In the background is the forest and the Soufrière Hills volcano, which erupted in 1995.
The face is divided into two distinct parts: the outer part shows all the specifications of the coin as well as the institution behind the coin, the name of Queen Elizabeth II and the face value of the coin (2 dollars).
The central one, divided from the outer one by a thick line that runs around the entire coin, shows two feathers in the shape of an almost closed circle and the face of the monarch inside.
The Montserrat Oriole coin was minted in 2020 by the Scottsdale Mint with 1 ounce of 99.999% pure silver, has a diameter of 38.61 millimetres and a thickness of 4. Get this coin at the best price and complete your collection of animals from all over the world!
