Hans Christian Andersen
Hans Christian Andersen was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales. Andersen's popularity is not limited to children: his stories express themes that transcend age and nationality. Andersen's fairy tales, of which no fewer than 3381 works have been translated into more than 125 languages, have become culturally embedded in the West's collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. Some of his most famous fairy tales include "The Emperor's New Clothes", "The Little Mermaid", "The Nightingale", "The Snow Queen", "The Ugly Duckling", "The Little Match Girl", "Thumbelina", and many others. His stories have inspired ballets, plays, and animated and live-action films. One of Copenhagen's widest and busiest boulevards is named "H.C. Andersens Boulevard".


The reverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Hans Christian Andersen, surrounded by a beautifully coloured design of five of his legendary and loved Fairy Tales. On the bottom of the effigies, the inscription: “Andersen’s Fairy Tales” – the name of the coin. The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “SOLOMON ISLANDS” – the issue country, “100 DOLLARS” – the face value and “2018” - the year of issue.
