Gold Ounce 2020 Great Barrier Reef, Coin from Niue
CoinGold Ounce 2020 Great Barrier Reef

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 features the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and has a genuine Saltwater Pearl insert.

The Great Barrier Reef at the northeast coast of Australia has a length of approximately 2,300 km. With more than 2,900 individual coral reefs, it is the world's largest coral reef system. In 1981 it was declared as a UNESCO Nature World Heritage and it is also called one of the seven "wonders of the world".

Obverse
Niue / Gold Ounce 2020 Great Barrier Reef - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin shows at its centre the crowned bust of Queen Elizabeth II wearing a pearl necklace, facing right (her effigy known as the "Third Portrait", by Raphael David Maklouf).

The designer's initials are usually incuse in tiny letters on the neck truncation when this portrait is used, but they are not displayed here.

Around the rim, the monarch's legend, date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II · NIUE 2020 · 100 DOLLARS · 1 OZ 9999 GOLD ·.

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