Anguilla is represented by a pair of eels. The Latin name for the European Eel is actually Anguilla Anguilla, and the entire eel family is called the Anguillaforms, so a nice touch, even if the names are not linked to the island itself. A good design, especially in lightly coloured form, complete with a map of this tiny island (only 17 miles long) and an eel patterned border.
Grenada, is represented by a heavily stylised walnut tree. While we’re not aware of any particular link with the island, although almonds, peanuts and cashews are common Caribbean crops, and Grenada is quite famous for its spice crops, but it’s another neat and unusual piece of art. A good contrast to the Anguillan design, and an example of the variation that exists in this series, now 42 designs old.
All eight coins should be available to order now, with shipping in 3-4 weeks time. We have a comprehensive Bullion Profile up on site, with full details of every issue since the original launch in 2018. I noticed the profile is getting a little unwieldy (almost 200 images!), so it’s getting refreshed and compacted. I’d hoped to have it ready now, but it’s more work than envisaged, so it should be live tomorrow. The current one is still active.
