CoinGold Quarter Ounce 2022 Platinum Jubilee

New Zealand uses the New Zealand Dollar as its circulation currency for daily transactions. The country also issues a number of commemorative and collector coins, including in the internationally popular gold quarter-ounce format (abbreviated as 1/4 oz Au, where "Au" comes from the Latin word for gold, Aurum). Authorised by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, the official issuer of these coins is NZ Post - which also issues the country's postal stamps. Manufacturing of the coins is commissioned to various foreign mints.

The coins are "Non-Circulating Legal Tender" (NCLT) and not bullion because they are issued at prices much higher than their intrinsic value and are targeted at collectors who appreciate them for their artistic or sentimental value, and not at bullion investors.

The silver coin is dedicated to the Platinum jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II (70 years on the throne).

NZ Post says about it:
The vast majority of people cannot remember a time before Elizabeth II was our Queen. Her presence has been a continuous thread linking several generations. Queen Elizabeth II is renowned around the world for her dedication and devotion to the 15 nations she serves as sovereign. Her commitment to her role, her compassion for the people she meets and her professionalism in the work she does are all cornerstones of her character. For more than 70 years she has been a constant figure in the public lives of New Zealand, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the entire Commonwealth.

Obverse
New Zealand / Gold Quarter Ounce 2022 Platinum Jubilee - obverse photo

The obverse shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In small letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: NEW ZEALAND .9999 Au .25oz ELIZABETH II 2022.

The inscription also indicates the precious metal content - ".9999 Au .25oz" means "one quarter of a troy ounce of 99.99% gold"; Au is abbreviated from Aurum, the Latin word for gold.
