Known for its elaborate mating behaviors and mesmerizing eyes, the bigfin reef squid is one of the most social squid species — possibly a group of very closely-related species — known to swim the world’s oceans. Found in shallow tropical and temperate waters in the Indian and Pacific Oceans, and especially in the coral and rock reefs from which its name derives, the bigfin reef squid can often be found in vast shoals where squid of a wide range of sizes live together and rely on one another. This squid’s importance in the African context is celebrated by the Lithuanian Mint with the 2022 Antique Colorized Niue Wild Africa Series Bigfin Reef Squid 1/2 oz Silver Coin, available to you from Provident Metals.
The 2022 Antique Colorized Niue Wild Africa Series Bigfin Reef Squid Silver Coin features a striking design, a beautiful antique finish, and unforgettable colorized artwork. Provident Metals fully insures each and every shipment against even the remotest possibility of loss or damage; your coin arrives in a high-quality display case, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity that verifies its unique place in the mintage. It’s a must-have item for both nature enthusiasts and discerning collectors and investors.
The obverse side of the coin features a world-famous profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II to verify it as legal tender. Around the rim, a decorative antique border carries the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II NIUE” and “1 DOLLAR 2022.”
The coin’s reverse side features a squid’s eye rendered in magnified detail and vivid full color. The decorative border around the rim carries the inscriptions “I SEE YOU” and “I AM THE BIGGEST.”
The Lithuanian Mint’s Wild Afrika series is all about showcasing the diversity of wildlife to be found on and around the African continent. The pure silver collectibles in the series come packaged with informative mini-essays describing some of each animal’s most recognizable characteristics, along with a full-color photograph of the coin’s subject, a detail which generally provides the artwork on the collectible itself.
