CoinGold Quarter Ounce 2020 Harry Potter

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 a quarter ounce of gold (abbreviated as 1/4 oz Au, where "Au" comes from the Latin word for gold, Aurum). Many of these feature famous movie characters.

This coin is part of a New Zealand Mint series dedicated to characters from famous movies and features Harry Potter.

Harry Potter is the main character in a series of seven fantasy novels written by British author, J. K. Rowling. The novels chronicle the lives of a young wizard, Harry Potter, and his friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, all of whom are students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The main story arc concerns Harry's struggle against Lord Voldemort, a dark wizard who intends to become immortal, overthrow the wizard governing body known as the Ministry of Magic and subjugate all wizards and Muggles (non-magical people). The original seven books were adapted into an eight-part namesake film series by Warner Bros. Pictures.

The Mint says about this coin:
The Boy Who Lived, Harry Potter™, is engraved onto this ¼ oz gold coin which shows a detailed close-up of Harry casting a spell. The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the other side of the coin confirms it as legal tender. The coin is housed in a sturdy wooden coin case, ideal for display, which is placed inside a HARRY POTTER™-themed box showing the original coin image in colour. A Certificate of Authenticity, including the coin’s unique serial number, guarantees the pure quality of the gold and the limited mintage of 500 coins."

Finish: Proof.

Niue / Gold Quarter Ounce 2020 Harry Potter - 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 25 DOLLARS 2020.
