The Independent State of Samoa got one of its first major bullion coins courtesy of the Scottsdale Mint with the seahorse design. Now, it gets a second coin with a heraldic beast from the Middle Ages in Europe that symbolizes a dynasty that ruled Milan for nearly 200 years. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase 2020 Antique Samoa Serpent of Milan 1 oz Silver Coin online from Provident Metals.
The design of the Serpent of Milan dates back to 1075 when Ariprando Visconti founded the House of Visconti. The archbishop Ottone was the first individual from the House of Visconti to directly rule Milan when he took control of the city away from the Della Torre family nearly 200 years after Visconti founded the house. The House of Visconti ruled Milan from 1277 to 1447.
On the obverse side of 2020 Antique Samoa Serpent of Milan 1 oz Silver Coin includes an image of the Samoan crest. Devised in June 1962 as the nation became independent, the crest is inspired by the UN emblem with its background elements. The shield of the design has the Southern Cross constellation, waves, and a coconut palm tree.
The reverse face of 2020 Antique Samoa Serpent of Milan Silver Coins bears the image of the Serpent of Milan. The emblem includes a snake slithering up the surface of the bar and devouring a small child.
The House of Visconti first ruled Milan under the title Lord of Milan from 1277 to 1395. In that year, the title was changed to Duke of Milan until 1447 when Filippo Maria Visconti reigned as the final ruler from the house.
