CoinGold Twenty-fifth Ounce 2022 Thaler

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, collector and bullion 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 based on the troy ounce - such as the mini-coin format of one twenty-fifth of an ounce of gold (abbreviated as 1/25 oz Au, where "Au" comes from the Latin word for gold, Aurum).

This coin by the Czech Mint explores the history of the American Dollar, whose name derives from the Joachimsthaler (in Czech, Jáchymov Tolar), which originated in the Czech Kingdom in 1520. This high-quality currency spread throughout Europe and its success encouraged others to mint a number of imitations. The Czech tolar thus became, for example, the Dutch Daler, which was used, among other things, in the American colonies. The dollar was then created by further distortion of the Czech word.

The reverse of the coin was designed by Ladislav Vraný, and the obverse by Martin Dašek.

The obverse features three American "Liberty Dollars" dated 1794.

In a circle on the right, the (unofficial) "Public Seal of Niue". It has what looks like a plant arrangement at centre, within a double ornamental circle, itself surrounded by a circle of sea shells. This is crowned with St Edward's Crown (of the United Kingdom). Around above between the two, the inscription PUBLIC SEAL OF NIUE. Below that, a ribbon carries the motto ATUA NIUE TUKULAGI on two lines, below which two crossed katoua (Niue fighting clubs).

Around above, the face value and the date of issue 5 DOLLARS 2022 on a dot-patterned background.

The mint mark of the Czech Mint - a crowned monogram of the letters ČM (Česká mincovna) - is below the date.
