In the 2017 2 oz Reverse Proof Solomon Islands Silver Legends and Myths Phoenix release, the mythical bird comes to life on the coins design. The phoenix is a bird from Greek and Roman mythology that is associated with the sun, and said to obtain new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor.
On the reverse of the Legends and Myths Phoenix coin is the image of the bird during a period of cyclical regeneration. The phoenix is depicted rising out of the flames and ashes of its predecessors death to revive a new life.
The obverse of the 2017 2 oz Reverse Proof Solomon Islands Silver Legends and Myths Phoenix coin features the same image from the obverse of all coins in the series. The right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II featured was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, and represents the fourth-generation depiction of the Queen since 1952.
Each 2016 2 oz Legends and Myths coin is a reverse proof product with a double high-relief striking, which lends visual brilliance and depth to the design. Reverse proof coins have frosted backgrounds and mirrored finishes on the design sets.
