The EC8 Series represents the nations of Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Anguilla. The first seven nations listed above were founding members of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States, founded in 1981. Anguilla was admitted as an associate member in 1995.
When the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank was formed in 1983, the seven founding members of the OECS adopted the Eastern Caribbean dollar as a form of fiat currency for the nation. Anguilla is a British Overseas Territory and not an independent state, but it uses the Eastern Caribbean dollar.
The obverse side of 2021 1 oz Silver EC8 Antigua and Barbuda Coins features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This depiction of the Queen is found at the center with two fern leaves creating a frame around the portrait of Her Majesty. The Queen is shown here in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara, a tiara that was originally gifted to her grandmother, Mary of Teck.
On the reverse face of 2021 Silver EC8 Antigua and Barbuda Coins is a depiction of a small bird known as the frigate bird. Common to the tropical and subtropical regions of the world, the frigate bird can be found on the islands of Antigua and Barbuda.
