Are you looking for a visually stunning and unique coin to add to your collection? If you’re also interested in history or the evolution of technology in recent centuries, the 2022 Antique Barbados Alexander Graham Bell Telephone 3 oz Silver Coin may be the right addition to your coin collection.
Inscriptions on the obverse read BARBADOS, 2022, 5 DOLLARS, 3 OZ and AG 999. The coin is shaped like an old rotary phone from the mid-20th century. On the obverse, the location where a dial wheel might be is taken up by the standard obverse design on Barbados coins, including the nation’s seal. The seal is replete with symbols of the country, including a shield boasting the bearded fig tree and national flowers. Above the shield are a helmet and a hand holding stalks of sugarcane, which is an important crop in Barbados. The shield is supported by a stylized dolphin and pelican.
Inscriptions on the reverse include THE TELEPHONE, ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL and 1922-2022. On this side of the 2022 Antique Barbados Alexander Graham Bell Telephone Silver Coin, you’ll find the stunning detail of a 24k gold-plated rotary dial wheel. The wheel is actually movable, which is a unique touch for any coin. In the background behind this design element is a picture of Alexander Graham Bell making a phone call, which is taken from the famous photo of the actual event. Other items related to building or using phones appear in the background.
You get a lovely presentation box with this coin, so you can display that cool rotary dial plate in style. Coin arrives with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin includes the dated inscription 1922-2022, commemorating the 100-year anniversary of Alexander Graham Bell’s death. The phone itself had been invented and was in fairly common use in many areas by 1922.
