Stemming from Ancient Egyptian mythology and gaining greater traction in Western society during the Renaissance, the griffin (also known as griffon or gryphon) is a legendary creature that has the body, tail, and back legs of a lion. However, the creature’s head is that of an eagle, as well as the wings and talons on the front feet.

In ancient cultures, the griffin was known as the most powerful and majestic creature in the world, said to guard the priceless possessions and treasures of the wealthy. Because the lion is the king of beasts and the eagle king of the birds, the griffin was seen as the ultimate symbol of power.

Each 2016 Solomon Islands Legends and Myths Griffin 2 oz Silver Coin in this collection has a brilliant double high-relief striking, which brings the creature to life in 3D beauty. Topping off this coin’s appeal is the reverse proof finish, which gives the background field a strong, frosted finish and creates striking contrast for the deeply-mirrored design sets.


On the obverse of each Solomon Island Silver Legends and Myths coin, youll find the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, as well as engravings of Her Majestys name, the nation of issue, and the face value of the coin.


The reverse of the 2016 Solomon Islands Legends and Myths Griffin 2 oz Silver Coin is the image of the mythical beast. The design depicts the beast on a rocky outcrop and includes a privy mark unique to the collection.

All 2016 2 oz Reverse Proof Solomon Islands Silver Legends and Myths Griffin Coin includes a Certificate of Authenticity, and ships in a branded collection box that features a glass lid and circular shape.
