Government issued silver bullion coins from the Cayman Islands

Cayman Islands Marlin

The Cayman Islands is a British Overseas Territory that enjoys self-governing status. The island nation consists of three major islands: Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman. There is a total of just 102 square miles of land between the three islands. The Cayman Islands uses its own fiat currency, the Cayman Islands Dollar (KYD) and the country is known around the world as a hub of offshore financial activity.

In 2017, the Cayman Islands entered into an agreement with Scottsdale Mint to produce a bullion series of coins featuring the marlin, a sporting fish often found near the islands. Per the agreement, the mint will produce coins in fine (.999) silver and fine (.9999) gold – all of which will feature the marlin. The Cayman Islands Marlin silver coin is produced with a mintage of only 50,000 pieces and is delivered in “Proof-like” quality with a purity of .999 FS.
