CoinSilver Ounce 2013 Coronation 60th Anniversary

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 one ounce of silver format (abbreviated as 1 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum). 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.

This coin commemorates the 60th Anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, who is not only the Queen of the United Kingdom but also the Queen of New Zealand.

NZ Post (the issuer of the coin) says about it:
The design of the coin features the six main portraits of the Queen that have appeared on New Zealand legal tender coins. The frosted finish and three-dimensional relief applied to the portraits provide a striking contrast to the polished background. The first five portraits are beautifully engraved on the reverse side of the coin, while the obverse side of the coin features the Queen's portrait that appears on New Zealand coins today - designed by Ian Rank-Broadley.

The coin design shows how the Queen has changed through the years - from a youthful Queen in Mary Gillick's 1953 design to an experienced monarch in Ian Rank-Broadley's 1999 design.

Obverse

The obverse of the coin 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 tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the value: NEW ZEALAND ELIZABETH II 2013.

Around the rim, the reverse design of the coin displays five portraits of Queen Elizabeth II. Clockwise from below left:
- (twice) the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Mary Gillick, displayed on New Zealand pre-decimal coinage from 1953 to 1965,
- the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin, used on the first New Zealand decimal coins from 1967 to 1985,
- the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by New Zealand artist James Berry, used on some commemoratives from 1979 to 1982, and
- the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf, used on New Zealand coinage from 1986 to 1998.

Numismatists will notice that the Mary Gillick portraits are slightly different - the lower one is the "strapless" version used for the earliest issues, and the second one has a "strap" (actually a fold in the Queen's gown) which was added when the portrait was re-cut for better detail.

On four lines at centre, the inscription THE QUEEN'S CORONATION 60TH ANNIVERSARY. Below right, the face value $1 (one dollar).

In the rim around below right, the anniversary dates 1953 - 2013.
