Enchanting Portrayal of Clara
Obverse: On the obverse, a circular inset contains the right facing image of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "SOLOMON ISLANDS," "2 DOLLARS" and "1 OZ AG 999.9." The lightly frosted field beyond is decorated with a single snowflake, along with the date of issue "2022" above, and the coin's unique serial number below. This interpretation of the late monarch was designed by acclaimed British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998.
Reverse: The reverse is adorned with a fully colorized rendition of Clara the Ballerina balanced on the tips of her toes, while her skirt elegantly swishes around her form. In her arm she cradles her treasured Nutcracker, which is boldly colorized wearing a red and blue soldier's uniform.
