Gold Ounce 2019 Queen Elizabeth II First Visit, Coin from Niue
CoinGold Ounce 2019 Queen Elizabeth II First Visit

Niue, a sovereign state in free association with New Zealand, uses two official legal tender currencies. The New Zealand Dollar is the circulation currency for daily transactions, while the government also authorises legal tender coins in the Niue Dollar currency for collector's purposes.

A number of mints issue a large variety of commemorative and collector coins under the authority of Niue. These coins are dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to Niue itself. Many of them are in standard bullion sizes - such as one ounce of gold (abbreviated as 1 oz Au, where "Au" comes from the Latin word for gold, Aurum).

This coin struck from one ounce of 99.99% gold is dedicated to the first visit of Queen Elizabeth II to Australia on 3 February 1954. She has been the first reigning monarch to visit Australia (the monarch is represented in the country by the Governor General who appoints ministers, judges, and ambassadors and gives royal assent to legislation in her name).

Obverse
Niue / Gold Ounce 2019 Queen Elizabeth II First Visit - obverse photo

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: ELIZABETH II · NIUE 2019 · 100 DOLLARS · 1 OZ 9999 GOLD ·.

The inscription also includes the precious metal content; "1 OZ 9999 GOLD" means "one troy ounce of 99.99% gold".

At its centre, the reverse of the coin shows the young Queen Elizabeth II as she appeared during her coronation in 1952. She is crowned with St Edward's Crown, which has been traditionally used to crown English and British monarchs at their coronations since the 13th century.

Behind her, an ornament of pikes topped by fleurs-de-lis. Below centre, St Edwards Crown again; at its base, a diamond is inserted into the coin. To the left and right of the crown, the anniversary dates 1954 and 2019.

On the left, an English Lion supports the Union Jack (the flag of the United Kingdom); on the right, a kangaroo supports the flag of Australia.

Around above, the inscription THE FIRST REIGNING MONARCH TO VISIT AUSTRALIA; in a ribbon below, QUEEN ELIZABETH II.
