A mermaid princess adorns the latest in Scottsdale Mint’s Pacific themed silver bullion coin rangets

Continuing their efforts to add new coins to their numerous bullion series, Scottsdale Mint has released the 2022 Mermaid Princess of the Sea’s bullion coin range, the second in the series, and it brings a new variant to the show. Launched in late-2021, it was a nice design, full of cool touches, and available in a standard brilliant uncirculated finish, as well as a very attractive antiqued one.

This 2022 design is quite different, eschewing the darker elements of the mermaid mythology present in the first coin, for one pushing the more feminine beauty side of it. They’ve done a good job on that score, as the mermaid is beautiful and elegant, at home in her aquatic environment, A border ‘wreath’ of marine life surrounds her. Simple, but very well done.

The same two base formats make up the range. A one-ounce brilliant uncirculated coin with a 15,000 mintage is the obvious key offering, but the 5,000 mintage antiqued variant is our favourite yet again. Joining them this year is a coloured BU version, presented in Scottsdale’s Certi-Lock packaging. It’s capped at 2,000 pieces, is subtly applied, and has the same obverse.

All together, a neat addition to a relatively young series. They should all be available to order now, with shipping around the end of this month. As always, we’ve added these ones to our monster-sized round-up of Scottsdale Mint’s many limited mintage bullion series.
