Gold Ounce 2020 Year of the Rat, Coin from Niue
CoinGold Ounce 2020 Year of the Rat

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 coins under the authority of Niue. Most of these are commemorative and collector issues dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to Niue itself. Many of them are in standard bullion sizes, including one ounce of gold (abbreviated as 1 oz Au, where "Au" comes from the Latin word for gold, Aurum). Those issued at prices much higher than their bullion value are separately listed in the Non-Circulating Legal Tender (NCLT) gold ounce section of the site.

Unlike them, this coin is targeted at bullion investors and was initially released at a price close to the value of its precious metal content.

This coin is part of a New Zealand Mint series of 1oz gold bullion coins and is dedicated to the 2020 Chinese Lunar Year of the Rat.

The Mint says about it:
"The 1oz Gold Year of the Rat Coin - Niue 2020 features a rat in polished relief. The image is softened by decorative motifs. The Chinese character for "rat" is also included on the coin reverse along with and the metal weight and quality. This coin is all the more significant as 2020 is the year of the Metal Rat."

Obverse
Niue / Gold Ounce 2020 Year of the Rat - 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 small 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 250 DOLLARS 2020.
