- Q & A
Why does this 2022 1 oz. silver spherical colorized antiqued coin tribute to the planet Mercury belong in your collection of precious metal treasures?
This spherical coin issued by Barbados is a spectacular representation of the planet Mercury. Mercury is the smallest planet in our solar system, with a diameter measuring just about 1,405 km larger than the earth's moon. As the planet located closest to the sun, it completes a full solar orbit in 87.97 earth days. Due to Mercury's extreme temperatures, thin atmosphere and massive amount of solar radiation, the planet is unable to support life as we know it.
- This 2022 Mercury coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
- The sphere-shaped coin measures approximately 33 mm in diameter.
- The coin features a surface enhanced with an ultra dark antiqued finish.
- The coin carries a legal tender value of $5 in Barbados.
- The coin includes ingeniously designed display packaging.
- The mintage is limited to just 4,879 pieces, all of which is currently sold out at the Mint, a number inspired by Mercury's diameter of 4,879.4 km.
Sensational Miniature Mercury Sculpture
Obverse: The planet's heavily cratered surface is interrupted on the obverse, featuring a smooth area adorned with the coat of arms of Barbados.

Reverse: The reverse is a scaled replica of the antiqued bronze landscape of the planet Mercury, with a vast array of varied sized impact craters and mare-like plains scattered across the surface, similar in appearance to the earth's moon.
