Description

The tiny, isolated Island of Saint Helena is an unlikely candidate as one of the most significant and influential nations in terms of global trade. Yet, when one looks back and examines our collective history, St. Helena repeatedly comes up as an integral component to global trade and commerce. The Island, which spans an area of mere 17 kilometers in length by 10 kilometers in breadth, was seen as an oasis by explorers and conquerors such as the Dutch, Portuguese, and English, all vying for control of the crucial port of call. By 1658 the British claimed the Island for themselves by making it a fortress and a hub for lucrative expeditions to India, China, and the rest of the eastern world. The company reached unprecedented heights of success, accounting for half of the word’s trade, establishing a monopoly in cotton, silk, salt, spices and tea, among many others, contributing to the vast and enormous wealth of the British empire. The Island, which remains a British colony to this day, was a vital component in the rise of the British empire. This 999 silver bar in a unique 250-gram denomination is in homage to both the might of global trade and the tiny, isolated Island that played such a critical role in shaping modern history.

The reverse illustration of this bar features a British Vessel, branded with the insignia of the East India Company of London. The intricate detailing included on the bar, in the form of etching, texturing, and shading, work harmoniously, creating a symphony of bullion and art. Interconnected lines adorn the coins field, reminiscent of the interconnected, new age of globalized prosperity.

The bar stays true to the nostalgic theme, with the early portrait of Queen Elizabeth centered on the coin’s obverse, with the contrast between the depiction and the bar’s matte field further contributing to the aesthetic appeal.

These aesthetically appealing. Sleek 250-gram silver bars are an excellent addition to any portfolio, with a yield of approximately 8.0375 of pure silver to your holdings. Additionally, this appreciating asset serves as an excellent gift to those who are passionate about history, economics, or art.
