An antique silver coin is a modern bullion silver piece purposely crafted to look as though it is hundreds, if not thousands, of years old. While each mint has its own process when it comes to creating antique silver coins, most apply a polish to the coin that creates an overall-matte appearance to the surface area. The goal is to create a coin that looks worn and aged, even though all of the design elements have the greatest detail possible and there are no signs of wear and tear present on the specimens.
One of two coin collections available for Samoa, the Samoa Seahorse features an animal on the obverse that many may not even realize is a species of fish. These marine creatures are so-named as “seahorses” because of the upright posture of the body and the shape of the head on the animals. Seahorses consist of 46 different species of marine fish in the hippocampus genus.
A seahorse is depicted in the obverse design element of 2020 1 oz Antique Samoa Seahorse Silver Coins. The seahorse is shown in right-profile relief with its curled, prehensile tail at the bottom and its horse-shaped head at the top. The seahorse is known to have an armored body and is a unique species in that the males carry the children, not the females. The design also includes bubbles of ocean water with stylized waves present in the background as well.
Samoa’s coat of arms is found on the reverse side of 2020 Antique Samoa Seahorse Silver Coins. The national coat of arms uses a shield based on that of the United Nations. A popular design element within flags of the Commonwealth Nations is also present in the coat of arms of Samoa with the Southern Cross constellation of stars in the lower half of the shield.
