Saint Lucia Flamingo
Government issued silver bullion coins from Saint Lucia

Saint Lucia Flamingo

The 2018 1 oz St. Lucia Flamingo Silver Coin is the eighth and final release in a planned series of eight coins. The collection is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank and the Scottsdale Mint to issue gold and silver bullion coins on behalf of the eight member nations of the ECCB. Known as the EC8, this collection will include coins for Antigua & Barbuda, Anguilla, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

The island of Saint Lucia became an independent state in 1979, and entered as a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. Blessed with a geography and climate conducive to a natural habitat of large numbers of bird species, this coin celebrates one of the most easily identifiable species native to the islands, the flamingo.

The 1 oz. coin has a nominal value of $2 and is legal tender in Montserrat and countries aligned with the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank. The coin is produced by the Scottsdale Mint with a purity of .999 Fine Silver. Mintages in the series are limited. The reverses will differ from year to year but will all share the motif of the natural beauty found in and near St. Lucia.
