Barbados Trident returns in gold and silver bullion form for 2019

Returning again, the Barbados Trident bullion coin is now back on sale. Available in one-ounce 0.999 silver, and one-ounce 0.9999 gold formats there are no alterations to the basic design, other than the date, from last two years, except for the background. The pattern of wavy lines is back after the use of a crinkled finish last year, but this time they radiate out from the centre. The 2017 issue had them flowing from top to bottom. A minor change.

The silver remains capped at 30,000 pieces, and the gold limited to just 5,000. These tighter mintages are no doubt the result of Scottsdale issuing a wider selection of designs, rather than any inherent weakness in overall sales. They do seem to be exceptionally busy of late…

Available to order now, they shouldn’t have an excessive premium, making them attractive to stackers. No news on any privy variants yet, but it is rather early for that.
