Barbados was once a colonial territory of the United Kingdom, but earned its independence in 1965. In November of that year, Barbados became an independent nation within the Commonwealth of Nations with Queen Elizabeth II as its monarch. The nation was once a major hub for the sugarcane industry in the Caribbean.
On the obverse field of the 2017 Barbados Trident 1 oz Silver Coins, you will find the national coat of arms for Barbados. The national shield has a knights helmet above it with a hand reaching up through the helmet that holds two sugarcanes, symbols of the islands historic economic base. The shield itself has two Pride of Barbados flowers, the national flower of the nation, and a bearded fig tree in the center. The shield is supported on its sides by a dolphin fish and a pelican.
The reverse face of 2017 Barbados Trident Silver Coins includes the image of the trident head. In ancient mythology, the trident was said to give the god of the seas the power to control the tides, weather elements over the oceans, and other forces involving water. The trident head is featured here broken off from the staff as a symbol of the countrys freedom from direct British rule in 1965. The trident head is used on these coins and also features on the national flag.
The Barbados Trident coin series is available from the Scottsdale Mint, a private minting facility in Arizona. The coins are produced annually in 1 oz silver and 1 oz gold with these 2017 coins representing the debut year.
