ANGUILLA: The 2020 EC8 Anguilla coin proudly displays the island nation’s Coat of Arms, which is also the emblem found on the flag of Anguilla, a traditional symbol of the territory. The coat of arms consists of three dolphins leaping over the sea.
The orange dolphins represent endurance, unity, and strength, and they form a circle as a sign of continuity. The badge has a white background, for peace and tranquility, and a turquoise-blue base representing the surrounding Caribbean sea and also faith, youth, and hope.
ST LUCIA: The 2020 EC8 St. Lucia coin depicts the many beautiful faces of this island that is truly blessed by nature. The foreground prominently features the Whiptail Lizard (affectionately called “Zando” by locals), an endangered and iconic reptile species that is endemic to St. Lucia and the only whiptail species found in the entire Caribbean.
The whiptail is set against a backdrop of the famous Gros and Petit Pitons rising up from the sea. The volcanic peaks rise dramatically from the Caribbean Sea to approximately 750m and are classified as a World Heritage Site. Finally the coin includes the national flower – the St. Lucia Rose – a nod to the abundant flora the island is so proud of.
