CARIBBEAN SEAHORSE – 2021 Barbados 1 oz Silver BU

Barbados Seahorse Series

This is the fourth coin in the Caribbean Silver series featuring the unique seahorse. Each year a new design features the seahorse or in this year’s coin a couple of seahorses. This Silver bullion program has become popular not only with bullion buyers but also collectors who want to own each design. All previous coins in this program have sold out and are difficult to find in the market.

Seahorses are truly unique, and not just because of their unusual equine shape. Unlike most other fish, they are monogamous and mate for life. Rarer still, they are among the only animal species on Earth in which the male bears the unborn young. A baby seahorse is called a fry.

Reverse

Features an image of a two seahorses facing each other. One is a close-up view and the second is smaller and somewhat in the background. In the background are graphics representing the waves of the ocean, an ocean plant and air bubbles formed by the wildlife in the sea. The name of the coin, purity and year of issue is also on the reverse.

Obverse face

Displays the Barbados coat of arms along with the face value and purity. The Golden Shield of the Arms carries two Pride of Barbados flowers (the National Flower) and the Bearded Fig Tree (ficus Citrifolia). On either side of the shield are the supporters-on the right is a dolphin symbolic of the fishing industry and on the left is a Pelican, after Pelican Island, a small outcrop later incorporated into the Deep Water Harbour development. Above the shield is a helmet and mantling and on a wreath is the arm and hand of a Bajan holding two crossed pieces of sugar cane symbolic of the sugar industry. The Coat of Arms carries the motto “Pride and Industry.”
