Known officially as the Independent State of Samoa, the small nation consists of two main islands and four smaller islands. Samoa was known as Western Samoa until July 4, 1997, a move that offended American Samoa as it believed the name change diminished its own identity. Independent as of June 1, 1962, Samoa was the first Polynesian nation to reclaim independence in the 20th century.

The obverse face of the 2019 1 oz Silver Samoa Seahorse Coin features a long seahorse. The seahorse comes from the genus Hippocampus and includes a total of 45 individual species. The creature gets its name from the neck and head that resemble the appearance of a horse. The segmented body on a seahorse has bony armor and an upright posture with a curled, prehensile tail. In this design, the seahorse is in the center in right-profile relief with Polynesian-styled tribal waves in the lower-left background field and seagrass along the top rocker of the design field.
On the reverse side of 2019 Silver Samoa Seahorse Coins is the coat of arms for Samoa. The seal is inspired by the United Nations seal and features a cross-hatched grid and fern leaves behind the crest. The national crest has a field of azure in the lower two-thirds with the five stars of the Southern Cross constellation. A banner along the bottom has the national motto in Samoan which translates as “Samoa is founded on God.”
