Solomon Islands

Comprising 992 mountainous islands and low-lying coral atolls, the Solomons lie east of Papua New Guinea and northeast of Australia in the south Pacific. The hidden paradise of this Pacific archipelago was explored in 1568 by Alvaro de Mendana of Spain and not visited again for about 200 years. The Solomon Islands achieved self-government in 1976, and independence from the UK in 1978.

Apart from tourism, the country’s economy is based on fishing, agriculture and forestry. As a modern coin issuer, the country is renowned for its exclusive Precious 6 in 1 Coin that features the Continents of the world with different precious metal plating.
