One Dollar Silver 2014 Persian Cat, Coin from Niue
CoinOne Dollar Silver 2014 Persian Cat

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, bullion and collector coins under the authority of Niue. These coins are dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to Niue itself.

Some coins are marketed in standard bullion sizes, like half ounce silver, one ounce silver etc, and some of those are also denominated as $1, for which see respective lists. This coin, denominated as One Niue Dollar, is not in a standard ounce-based size and is made using a "smartminting" technique - meaning that it has features not generally found in circulation coins.

This coin is part of the Man's Best Friends series of silver coins and is dedicated to the Persian Cat.

The Mint says about it:
"Persians are admired for their luxurious coats and large expressive eyes. These cats possess sweet and gentle personalities making them charming pets for all ages. There’s a reason we call dogs and cats man’s best friends. The world’s most popular pets, cats are known for their affection and endearment combined with chilly independence. Cats and their humans, especially women, form strong social bonds and a mutual understanding based on affection and indulgence. Apart from being a remarkable collector’s item in a specially designed packaging, the coin will make a charming gift for all lovers of Persian Cats!"
