Comments

New from the Scottsdale Mint comes a new, extremely low mintage bullion coin that is inspired by ancient folklore. The legend of the Fiji Mermaid is eerie and mysterious, and the mystical creature is now reminiscent on this beautiful 1 oz Silver coin.

The legend of the Fiji Mermaid began when a sailor came across what he thought was an actual mermaid that had washed up to shore in the Fiji Islands in the early 1800s. The original object was exhibited by P.T. Barnum in Barnum’s American Museum in New York in 1842 and then mysteriously disappeared. It is assumed that one of the many fires suffered by Barnum destroyed the “Mermaid”.
