The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (“CIMA” or “the Authority”), together with Scottsdale Mint, is once again proud to reveal the latest additions to the Cayman Islands Atlantic Blue Marlin Coin collection series – the 2018 editions. The new coins include the one ounce .999 Silver Bullion coin, one ounce .999 Silver Commemorative coloured coin, one ounce .999 Gold Bullion coin, and one ounce .999 Gold Commemorative coloured coin. The series which was inspired by the Blue Marlin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II which is depicted on the obverse of the coin with the Blue Marlin on the reverse side.
The Blue Marlin is currently considered a threatened species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature due to over-fishing. As a big sport fishing destination, the Cayman Islands promotes eco-tourism and sustainable fishing practices such as the “catch and release” programme.
The two silver coins are currently available for sale; however the Authority will happily accept pre-payment orders for the two gold coins. All four coins would surely make the perfect Christmas gift for any coin collector.
For more information, please contact CIMA’s Currency Division at (345) 244-1596, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The office is located on the ground floor of the Government Administration Building, 133 Elgin Avenue and is open for sales on weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
