The Barbados Trident collection debuted in 2017 with the silver coin. This the latest in a string of new, foreign-reserve coins from the private mint in Arizona. Other examples include its long-running programs with African nations and the new Cayman Islands series of silver coins as well.
Barbados is a former British territory in the southern Caribbean that gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1966. The imagery of the trident used on the obverse of these stunning gold coins reflects the freedom of Barbados. The trident has a broken shaft, highlighting the nation’s break from the United Kingdom.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Barbados Trident Gold Coin you’ll find the image of a powerful trident. The trident is viewed as a powerful weapon capable of controlling the seas and was wielded in the ancient world by the Roman god of the seas, Neptune. As an island nation surrounded by thousands of miles of water on all sides, the people of Barbados are accustomed to living at the mercy of the oceans.
The obverse of the Barbados Trident coins includes the national crest of Barbados. This seal emphasizes the natural beauty of the country, and includes the broken shaft of the trident above the center of the crest with two heads of a trident on either side along with the year of issue. The national motto of “Pride and Industry” appears on a banner below.
