Barbados is a beautiful island nation in the Caribbean Sea. Its official language is English and its capital city of Bridgetown, located on a large bay surrounded by low green hills.
Barbados has partnered with us to create beautiful and collectible 1 oz legal tender coins to represent their stunning country.
The largest Barbadian island – Carlisle Bay- has an area of 180 sq km giving it one of the highest stretches per capita ratios for any country. Barbados is known through out the world for its fishing.
The Barbadian people are known as warm, friendly and gentle. They enjoy a relaxed lifestyle taking time to celebrate their heritage in the way of carnivals, music festivals and local beauty pageants.
In 1966, Barbados broke away from the United Kingdom and became an independent nation. The broken trident shaft on top of their coat-of-arms denotes this breakaway period in history.
Barbados is also one of the only places you can visit where you can swim with the whale sharks. The Barbados trident is also a symbol of sovereignty. It is on the country’s coat-of-arms, and it appears in many other instances including its flag.
If a silver coin is legal tender, then it is an acceptable form of payment in a specific country.
The Barbados Trident series is minted as legal tender for the island nation of Barbados by Scottsdale Mint.
What does this mean?
These silver bullion coins can be used as currency for goods and services on the beautiful Caribbean Island as good as dollars, although you would never want to actually use these as currency, since the silver price of the coin will always exceed its stated dollar amount.
Wondering whats the difference between a coin and a round? Rounds are silver metal coins with no face value, they are not legal tender for a country. They can be purchased in mint condition or circulated like other silver coins. All of our coins are 1 troy oz 999 fine silver, and we guarantee every single bullion coin we sell.
In contrast, coins are made to be legal tender for payment, and they gain special designations under countries laws, and can sometimes be exempt from taxable situations.This means that coins will usually have a higher value than rounds and they’re often worth more because because of those special designations.
If you are looking for a new hobby, an investment opportunity, or just want to show off your collection of rare coins, then silver coins may be worth collecting. This is because they have the potential for significant appreciation in value over time. The Trident Coins are rated as proof-like, an extremely high designation and quality of coin for collectors and precious metal enthusiasts, just below perfection!
It’s also collectible due to its very limited mintage of only 30,000!
They also make amazing gifts for friends or family members who love to collect rare items! The value of these beautiful pieces will likely increase over time and they are fun to hold look at.
Silver bullion is a form of investment that you can purchase in the form of coins, bars or rounds. Silver and other precious metals have been used as money for centuries and it’s used today because its value is usually more stable than other forms of investments. The Barbados Trident coin offers investors more security than just purchasing silver from an etf or stock, since you have physical ownership of it. Bullion can also come in a range of purities and sizes. Scottsdale Mint only sells 99.9% pure silver, or .999 fine silver.
