CoinOne Dollar Silver 2017 Year of the Rooster

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. Many of them are made using "smartminting" techniques and have features not generally found in circulation coins - e.g. high relief, full colour printing and/or different forms, including fully three dimensional (3D).

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 particular coin denominated as One Niue Dollar is not in a standard ounce-based size.

This coin is part of a Mint of Poland series featuring the Chinese Lunar Calendar and is dedicated to the 2017 Year of the Rooster.

The Mint says about it:
According to the Chinese calendar, the Year of the Rooster begins on 28th of January 2017 and ends on 16th February 2018. Rooster, the tenth animal of the Chinese zodiac, is a sign of hard-working individualists displaying a flair for fashion and a great sensitivity to beauty. Therefore, it is not surprising that people born in the year of the Rooster are self-confident and keen to take up new challenges. Observant, courageous and honest, they quickly win trust from their colleagues and surround themselves with loyal friends. There are many famous people born in the Year of the Rooster, among them Stanisław Lem, Catherine the Great and Giuseppe Verdi.

The obverse of the coin shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait").

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 ISLAND · 1 DOLLAR 2017 ·.

Below the portrait on its right side, the small MW mint mark of the Mint of Poland (m over W), for Mennica Warszawska (Mint of Warsaw).

Around below right, the hallmark Ag 999 (99.9% silver; "Ag" is abbreviated from Argentum, the Latin word for silver, and is internationally used to mark silver coins and jewellery).
