One of the geographical features that has crucially shaped a vast area of the world we know today, the Pacific Ring of Fire is a contiguous belt of seismically-active regions stretching more than forty thousand kilometers in length, arcing around the Pacific Ocean and comprising the western coasts of both North and South America. Formed by the action of plate tectonics and the rise of molten magma from the depths of the Earth, it contains hundreds of volcanoes, including the bulk of the most active fiery peaks in the world. Several of those can be found in the Republic of Vanuatu, which pays tribute to the formative and awe-inspiring power of vulcanism with the 2023 Antique Vanuatu Volcano 5 oz Silver Coin, now available from Provident Metals.

Obverse & Reverse

The seal of the Republic of Vanuatu dominates the base of the coin, or its obverse side. It’s surrounded by inscriptions of the Republic’s name, the coin’s face value and year of issue, and the weight and purity of its silver. The reverse side is a vivid three-dimensional sculpture of a volcano in eruption, with gilding representing the molten lava that flows from the peak down its slopes.


The planet Earth averages about fifty volcanic eruptions a year. Often these events go largely unnoticed by the public, but there have been many times when such eruptions have shaped the course of history: such as the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD that buried the Roman city of Pompeii, or the eruption of Krakatoa in 1883 that set off fatal tsunamis and was audible up to 4,800 kilometers away. Despite their danger, these awe-inspiring wonders of nature also compel the human imagination with their beauty, and materials left by their eruptions can produce some of the world’s most fertile soils.
