A new addition to Scottsdale Mint’s epic Eastern Caribbean 8 bullion coin series debuts today, in what has become a covid-enforced, truncated release schedule. There are still three more issues to come in 2020 as we head into November. The little volcanic island of Montserrat is the subject location this time, and it’s a fine looking piece incorporating the fiery mountain the nation is known for, and one of its most colourful inhabitants, the Oriole.
We’ve been through this series so many times before that we’ll just point you in the direction of our comprehensive guide to the series, which features images of all four variants of the 21 issues to date, along with desriptions. Basically, it’s the same four 1 oz coins. The gold 0.9999 (2,500) and silver 0.999 (25,000) are back in bullion form, with coloured proof versions available for the collector in gold (100) and silver (500) as well. The gold bullion coin comes in Scottsdale’s innovative Certi-Lock packaging, while the proof pair come boxed. Available to order now, it should ship from 2-3 weeks time. We’ve been following EC8, so check out our comprehensive Bullion Coin Profile for more details.
