Each piece is struck from 2 oz silver 999, 40 mm in diameter with reverse proof. The five silver coins can be sold individually or in a specially designed collection packaging. The collection is strictly limited to merely 1 500 sets worldwide.
The traditional obverse of the coin by the Solomon Islands features the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth ІІ. Among the inscriptions, there are: the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its issuing country and year.
Every coin carries the privymark of the collection. The reverse impresses with its double high relief – a griffin with its wings stretched out. The griffin is a fascinating mythical creature whose roots reach from western Europe to the Eastern edges of India and beyond. In any mythology, the griffin is portrayed as a mix between an eagle and a lion. In all cases, this creature is shown as having the head of an eagle and the body of a lion, but from there the other specific features are in debate.
