The largest belt of volcanoes and seismically active regions in the world is a vast formation over 40,000 kilometers long called the Pacific Ring of Fire, created by the movements of the Earth’s tectonic plates. It contains hundreds of active volcanoes and embraces the Pacific coasts of North and South America and numerous islands in the western Pacific Ocean, including the islands of the Republic of Vanuatu, which contains seven volcanic peaks that reach above sea level. The most famous of these, Mount Yasur, attracts thousands of tourists every year, and the Republic pays tribute to the national importance of these fiery landmarks with an extraordinary three-dimensional bullion coin.

Every year, the world sees an average of fifty volcanic eruptions, and there have been numerous such events in the past that helped to shape history or prehistory: like the eruption of Mount Vesuvius that buried a pair of Roman towns in 79 AD, or the eruption in Iceland in 2010 that disrupted weeks’ worth of air travel with a mighty plume of ash. The power of the volcano is always something to be respected, but they are also a source of awesome natural beauty, and the materials they leave behind weather into some of the most fertile soils in the world.
The 2023 Antique Vanuatu Silver Volcano Coin celebrates this awesome natural phenomenon with a stunning three-dimensional coin that features gold plating and an antique finish. It comes in a presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity to specify each coin’s unique number in the exclusive limited mintage.
The seal of the Republic of Vanuatu features on the base of the coin, its obverse side. It’s surrounded by inscriptions of the country’s name, the coin’s face value and year of issue, and the weight and purity of its silver contents. The reverse side is a dramatic, highly-detailed sculpture of a volcano with magma, represented by gilding, flowing out from the peak and down its slopes.
