Spectacular Galapagos Tortoise Design

Obverse: A portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is centered on the obverse, with tropical island elements such as a palm tree and feathery fronds, cleverly taking advantage of the coin's unique shape. Inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "SOLOMON ISLANDS," "2 DOLLARS" and "2021." Below, the coin's serial number is inscribed. This effigy of the Queen, crafted in 1998 by acclaimed British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, is known as the fourth definitive coinage portrait.

Reverse: A Galapagos Tortoise appears in stunning color on the reverse, its giant form bursting out of the coin's rim, with engraved foliage in the background. Inscribed "GIANTS OF THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS" and "999.9 SILVER 1 TROY OUNCE."
