Montserrat is known as the Emerald Isle of the Caribbean because of its similar physical geography from the sea as Ireland. Today, Montserrat is a British Overseas Territory and in the 1630s there was a large influx of Irish people to the small island nation. Many of these early Irish arrivals were indentured servants or forced laborers brought to the island by the British.
Over the course of time, more Irish people would follow as opposition soldiers deserted to live in Montserrat and prisoners were brought to the island. In fact, the depth of Irish ancestry on the island is so deep that the coat of arms for the island includes many figures which are well known to those from Ireland.
The reverse of all 2018 1 oz Colorized Montserrat Silver Emerald Isle of the Caribbean Coins includes two symbols. The British Union flag is featured with its iconic blue field with red-and-white cross. In the lower-right field is the blue-and-brown coat of arms for Montserrat. The seal includes a cross clutched by a woman known as Erin, the female personification of Ireland. She holds a harp in her left hand.
On the obverse of 2018 Colorized Montserrat Silver Emerald Isle of the Caribbean Coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted in a fourth-generation design here created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint.
These 2018 1 oz Colorized Montserrat Silver Emerald Isle of the Caribbean Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition with colorized lacquer on the British Union flag and the coat of arms for Montserrat. The coins are housed in individual capsules set in custom mint boxes and include a Certificate of Authenticity with the unique serial number.
