In partnership with the country of Samoa, we are pleased to offer the first release of an anticipated 2-coin annual program – The 1 oz Samoan Seahorse Silver Coin (2018)(Proof-like).
The Seahorse, named as such for its horse-like head, is native to the tropical waters surrounding the Samoan Islands in the South Pacific Ocean and can most often be found feeding or hiding in the ocean’s mangrove forests and sea grass beds.
The coin’s image is an artistic depiction of a Seahorse camouflaged in a sea grass bed near the ocean floor, attempting to elude its many predators. The unique abstract stain-glass design of this coin leaves the investor with the impression that this coin more closely resembles a piece of art than a legal tender instrument.
In this, the inaugural year of an anticipated annual program brought to you by Scottsdale Mint, the complete mintage of the 1 oz Samoan Seahorse Silver Coin (2018) is limited to only 30,000 pieces.
The coins, manufactured and distributed by Scottsdale Mint and legal tender in Samoa, are struck in .999+ silver, weighing 1 troy ounce each, proof-like and placed in capsules. They are shipped on customized Scottsdale Mint branded skin boards of five (5) coins allowing for ease of sale by cutting the skin board into individual pieces for your customers while keeping them sealed.
