Commemorating the 300th anniversary of European contact with the remote Easter Island, known to its inhabitants as Rapa Nui, the Independent State of Samoa has issued an exquisite ultra high-relief giant silver coin sure to be hailed by collectors as a masterpiece. The 2022 Antique Samoa Easter Island 1 Kilo Silver Coin is now available to order from Provident Metals.
Measuring 100 mm in diameter, the 2022 Antique Samoa Easter Island Silver Coin features a gorgeous antique finish whose refined matte quality is perfect for showcasing the multi-layered detail of its artwork celebrating the ancient Polynesian society of Rapa Nui. It comes in luxury box packaging with a Certificate of Authenticity, with all shipments fully insured by Provident Metals. With only 199 coins available, it’s a good idea to order early to get your piece of this limited mintage.
The reverse features an extravagant tribute to Rapa Nui built around a symbol of themanutara,the sacred “luck bird” at the heart of the island’s ancient spiritual traditions, surrounded by the inscriptions “Rapa Nui” and “300 Years.” Radiating out on three sides are stylized miniatures of great Moai statues arrayed like the spokes of a wheel, framing a montage of historical scenes. Standing out vividly on a fourth side are two Moai in three-dimensional detail, dominating the foreground.
The obverse features an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II along with the inscription “Samoa.” Its bottom edge shows a Samoan coat of arms with the inscriptions “1 kg,” the coin’s weight, and “Ag999,” confirming the quality of the silver.
Rapa Nui was settled by Polynesian explorers more than 1,400 years before European sailors reached its shores and christened it Easter Island. Their intrepid nature as voyagers, their ambition as sculptors of the enormous Moai that can still be seen today, and their faith that among other things featured the singular Tangata Manu “bird-man” racing ritual are all indelible contributions to world history and culture, vividly rendered in multiple layers of detail on this giant commemorative coin.
