Trident Series Continues at APMEX with a New Gold Release
APMEX, a leading online Precious Metals retailer based in Oklahoma City, is pleased to announce the continuation of the Trident Series launched by the Scottsdale Mint late last year.
Originally, the mint released a 1 oz Silver coin, but APMEX now offers a 1 oz Gold coin with the same exquisite design and quality craftsmanship. This first design features two images strongly connected with Barbados, the issuing country of the series.
Both the Gold and Silver coin focus on the trident, a symbol of strength and power drawing its roots from the Roman god Neptune. However, the trident found on the national flag of Barbados differs slightly from the typical Neptune symbol, as the shaft is broken, symbolizing Barbados’ independence from the United Kingdom in 1966.
The obverse of this first release displays the Barbados coat of arms, which includes a variety of important symbols such as sugar cane stalks, the Barbados national flowers and representations of the fishing industry.
The newest coin, containing .999 fine Gold, comes in a protective plastic capsule. The first release also comes in a plastic capsule and contains .999 fine Silver. Any collector or investor will find this series appealing, no matter the metal type.
