There are many different tales of mermaids throughout cultures from Europe and Africa to Asia and the South Pacific. In some cultures or even within different folklore within the same culture, mermaids are connected to perilous events that have occurred or serve as a sign that bad luck is pending. This includes events like storms, floods, shipwrecks, and drownings.
Sometimes, conversely, mermaids are seen as benevolent beings. In the Western world, tales of mermaids are often linked to the Sirens noted in Greek mythology. While the Greeks actually spoke of women who were half-birdlike in form, the growth of Christianity had a curious impact of switching the animal form of the body to being half fish instead.
The obverse of 2021 1 oz Antique Silver Samoa Pacific Mermaid Coins features the Samoan coat of arms. The design includes the shield of the Samoan coat of arms with the Southern Cross constellation in the bottom two-thirds and a green sea with a coconut palm in the upper-third of the shield. It is topped by a Christian cross.
On the reverse side of 2021 Antique Silver Samoa Pacific Mermaid Coins is an image of a Polynesian sailor in his outrigger canoe.

She appears here as a sign of trouble ahead, as you can see there are monstrous sea creatures gathering beneath his small vessel.
