Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This 2022 five ounce fine silver coin presents one of the most intriguing and collectible images of the world’s most famous ship – The Titanic. Using an intricately carved translucent Mother of Pearl inlay, a sense of mystery and ominous foreboding of the iceberg filled North Atlantic sea at night comes vividly to life. The coin appropriately features an antique finish and comes in an elegant case along with a certificate of authenticity. The coin has a legal tender face value of $25 in Solomon Islands. Mintage is limited to only 750 pieces worldwide. GST/HST exempt.

The main design depicts the unforgettable maiden voyage of Titanic 110 years ago, which was also the ships final voyage. On the top of the mother of pearl inlay are the coordinates of RMS Titanic. The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “SOLOMON ISLANDS” – the issue country, “2022” – the year of issue, “5 oz Ag 999” – the weight of the coin and the fineness of the Silver and “ELIZABETH II” – The name of the Queen.

The Titanic’s ill-fated life began with great fanfare in 1908, when the White Star Company announced its plans to beat all previous records in shipbuilding with a cross-Atlantic steamship unmatched in passenger capacity, luxury, and reliability. Completed in February 1912 and captained by White Star Line admiral Captain E. J. Smith, the 270-metre vessel was longer than four city blocks, more than 53 metres tall, weighed more than 45,000 tons, and comprised ten decks and numerous compartments divided into fifteen bulkheads. Its massive steel bulk was held together by more than 3 million rivets.

At 11:40 pm on the night of Sunday, April 14, 1912, this most colossal steamer in the world collided with an iceberg in frigid North Atlantic waters, about 900 kilometres (600 miles) off the coast of Nova Scotia. When the Titanic broke apart and sank less than three hours later, about two thirds of the more than 2,200 passengers and crew aboard lost their lives.
