The April 2015 Nepal earthquake (also known as the Gorkha earthquake) killed nearly 9,000 people and injured nearly 22,000. It occurred at 11:56 Nepal Standard Time on 25 April, with a magnitude of 7.8Mw or 8.1Ms and a maximum Mercalli Intensity of VIII (Severe). Its epicenter was east of Gorkha District at Barpak, Gorkha, and its hypocenter was at a depth of approximately 8.2 km (5.1 mi). It was the worst natural disaster to strike Nepal since the 1934 Nepal–Bihar earthquake. The ground motion recorded in the capital of Nepal was of low frequency which, along with its occurrence at an hour where many people in rural areas were working outdoors, decreased the loss of property and human life. The earthquake triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest, killing 21, making 25 April 2015 the deadliest day on the mountain in history. The earthquake triggered another huge avalanche in the Langtang valley, where 250 people were reported missing.
The reverse of the coin depicts what seems to be an after-earthquake scenario filled with earth cracks. On top of the coin, the inscriptions: “EARTHQUAKE” – the name of the coin and “CATACLYSMS” – the name of the series. The obverse of the coin depicts a catastrophic scene, the remains of a disrupted city after a terrible earthquake and the Coat of Arms of Fiji. All around the obverse, the inscriptions: “FIJI” – the issuing country, “2017” – the year of issue and “2 DOLLARS” – the face value.
