Limited mintage of 2022 pieces worldwide. GST/HST exempt.
The obverse depicts the Samoa coat of arms, face value, year of issue, fineness, and silver weight. A premium mahogany finish presentation case is included with an acrylic top for display.
A team sport combining aspects of football, basketball, and rugby, Quidditch adds the extra challenge of being played in the air on flying brooms! Matches are played on a large oval pitch with three ring-shaped goals of different heights on each side, with multiple positions and three types of balls: The Quaffle, used for scoring, the two Bludgers, used to knock opposing team members off their brooms, and the Golden Snitch, a small flying gold ball with wings that must be caught by the team’s Seeker to end the game.
