CoinGold Quarter Ounce 2021 Lord of the Rings - Aragorn

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 the Lord of the Rings books and films, and shows Aragorn.

The Mint says about it:
Brave leader, Aragorn, dominates this ¼ oz gold coin. On one side it shows a close-up view of warrior Aragorn with an arrow plucked from his quiver. The legal tender status of this stunning collectible coin is confirmed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II effigy on the obverse side.

The coin arrives in a display-ready wooden coin case which is placed inside a themed box showing the original coin image, in colour, on the base.

Obverse
Niue / Gold Quarter Ounce 2021 Lord of the Rings - Aragorn - 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 2021.
