Scottsdale Mint is pleased to announce a new annual bullion coin program – The Barbados Trident. In partnership with the country of Barbados, we are pleased to offer the first release of a 4-coin annual program – The 1 oz Barbados Trident Silver Coin (2017)(Proof-like).
The Trident, a symbol of strength and power, draws its roots from the mythical Roman God of Freshwater and the Sea, Neptune. However, the Trident that serves as the national pride of Barbados and that is found on the Barbados national flag differs from Neptune’s Trident in that the shaft of the Barbadian Trident is broken, symbolizing Barbados’ historical break and eventual independence from the United Kingdom in 1966.
In this, the inaugural year of an annual program brought to you by Scottsdale Mint, the complete mintage of the 1 oz Barbados Trident Silver Coin (2017) is limited to only 30,000 pieces. The coins, manufactured and distributed by Scottsdale Mint and legal tender in Barbados, are struck in .999+ silver, weighing 1 troy ounce each, proof-like and placed in capsules.
