The obverse of the coin is designed to look like an old-fashioned rotary phone. The receiver and body of the phone are clearly differentiated within the design, but where the rotary dial wheel would be, the seal of Barbados is placed. The seal includes numerous symbols of the nation, starting with the bearded fig tree and the national flower, which both appear on the center shield. Supports hold the shield on either side — a stylized dolphin on the right and a pelican on the left. Inscriptions surround this part of the coin. Outside of the dial plate, images and designs relevant to telephones are depicted, including an image of a classic phone in a different style from the one shaping the coin itself.
The reverse of the 2022 Silver Antique Barbados Alexander Graham Bell Telephone Coin includes more phone-related motifs. The background depicts Graham Bell making one of the first phone calls. The image is designed based on a photograph of him doing so. Wires and parts seem to scatter in the background. The star of the show on the reverse is the 24k gold-plated rotary dial inlay. It’s movable to give the feel of a real classic phone.
You’ll receive a presentation box, making it easy to display, store or transport the coin as needed while maintaining its lovely condition. This antique finished coin comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, so you know you’re getting one of the original 999 coins minted.
