Provident Metals is delighted to make available a new entry in the Independent State of Samoa’s series of silver notes celebrating iconic works of fantasy. The third note in the series, the Samoa Lord of the Rings 3 Gram Silver Note, celebrates the magisterialLord of the Ringstrilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien along with official artwork and hallmarks from the film franchise based on these iconic works.
The Samoa Lord of the Rings Silver Note is sure to be a welcome addition to any collection for silver enthusiasts and fans of the flagship brand of modern high fantasy. It features proof-like visuals: frosted designs set against mirror-like fields with vivid colorized artwork on the reverse. Carrying a face value and recognized as legal tender despite its lack of an issuing date — which alludes to the timelessness of Tolkien’s stories — it ships in a protective blister back with an officialLord of the Ringsthemed envelope. With just a few thousand of these notes available, it’s a good idea to get orders in early.
The classic profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, and seen on Commonwealth currency since 1998, is featured on the reverse, along with the coat of arms of the Independent State of Samoa and the inscriptions “SAMOA,” “AG .999 3G,” and “1 DOLLAR.”
The One Ring of Power, a dark artifact designed by the evil Sauron to subjugate the world of Middle-Earth, is featured at the center of the colorized artwork on the note’s reverse side. It’s joined by English and Elvish inscriptions of its famous associated quatrain and the title inscription “The Lord of the Rings.”
TheLord of the Ringstrilogy inspired generations of writers, visual artists, and other creators over the decades since it was first published, having a major impact on everything from books to games and comics, and films. There were several attempts to adapt it for the big screen before Peter Jackson hit on a winning approach with his trilogy of movies in the early years of this century, an adaptation that has left its own stamp on what has since become a major entertainment franchise. It’s a natural choice for a note series that’s all about worlds of imagination.
