Montserrat is located in the Leeward Islands of the Eastern Caribbean, which is part of the chain known as the Lesser Antilles, in the West Indies. It is a British Overseas Territory whose nickname, "The Emerald Isle of the Caribbean" is derived from its resemblance to coastal Ireland and for its Irish ancestry (prisoners, indentured servants, forced laborers, and loyal opposition soldiery) of many of its inhabitants who began arriving on the island around 1632. The national bird of Montserrat is the endangered Oriole as depicted on this coin. Since 1995 the Soufriere Hills volcano became active again, which lead to evacuations of nearly two-thirds of the island's population and increased the endangerment of the Oriole.
