Natural wonders is what has been inspiring people over thousands of years. We are often stunned at how many beautiful things are covered from the sight of the whole humanity and scattered all over the world. In 2012 Fiji started a series of coins called Treasures of Mother Nature, and it aims to spread the information about rare and beautiful stones all over the world. One of the coins issued in the series is dedicated to Vietnam and pink pearl — a stone widely collected in this country.
The Pink Pearl coin has a transparent semicircular glass insert in the lower half of the coin — it serves as a container for small beads of real pink pearls. The obverse contains the Royal Mint with Queen Elizabeth II and multiple inscriptions describing the country and year of issue, the regent's name and the face value, which is $1 for every coin in the series.
The masters from Fiji created only 999 coins, each made of pure .999 silver, encapsulated and put into a stylish black box that can be used for exhibiting this masterpiece. You can see the glass insert on the reverse as well. The mint on this side depicts a sea horse and a mountain temple. Both of them are very particular for this country and add a fine note of Oriental mood to the silver work. The legends provided on the reverse side read the name of the coin and the title of the series it belongs to.
