The Silver Barbados Trident coin is legal tender bullion coinage issued by the Scottsdale Mint on behalf of the island nation of Barbados. The selection of a broken trident head on the coin’s reverse field each year is symbolic of the national flag. The use of a broken trident head on the national flag is a reminder of the nation’s historic break from the United Kingdom in 1966. Barbados is now an independent nation within the Commonwealth realm.
On the reverse of 2018 1 oz Silver Pineapple Privy Barbados Trident Coins is that singular trident head. The trident has deep roots in ancient mythology, with both the Romans and the Greeks believing the sea god used the trident to control the currents, weather patterns, and waters of the seas and oceans.
