Barbados can often be referred to as the land of the flying fish. These foot-long aquatic animals can jump beyond water and fly for up to 200ft (30-40 metres). This unique ability evolved from the need to escape predators unable to leave the water. Native to Barbados’s waters, this fish is a national symbol and featured on one of the Scottsdale Mints most treasured coins.
Part of the Barbados fish-themed series, the 1oz Silver Flying Fish Coin, is the second released by the Scottsdale Mint following the Lion-fish 1oz Silver coin. Its unique design is highly regarded amongst collectors worldwide. To pair it off, the obverse features the Barbados coat of arms along with the coin's weight and purity. The coat of arms features the Pride of Barbados Flowers, the Bearded Fig Tree, and a dolphin symbolic to the importance of the fishing industry. The combination of these gives the coin an emblematic representation of the island. Containing 1 oz of pure silver, this coin has a value of 1 Barbados dollar and can be used as legal tender.
