CoinOne Dollar Silver 2020 Prague - Charles Bridge

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.

The Mint says about this coin:
King Charles IV was a monarch thanks to whom our capital city has not ceased to bask in glory even after centuries. The Charles Bridge became one of his most famous achievements.

Prague is divided by the Vltava River. Although it would seem that the city which was an important metropolis already in the 10th century had to abound with a wealth of bridges that would facilitate travel and trade, it was not true. The Charles Bridge was the only bridge across the Vltava river in Prague until 1845. First, there was a wooden bridge, but it poorly resisted water so a stone bridge - one of the oldest situated north of the Alps - was built in the second half of the 12th century and named after Judith - the wife of Vladislav II. Even this stone building eventually succumbed to floods, but it did not take long and Charles IV. decided to build a replacement in 1357. The bridge, which was first known as Stone or Prague bridge and as Charles bridge only from the 19th century, is over half a kilometre long, connects the Old Town with the Lesser Town and is an extraordinary art gallery, decorated with thirty Baroque statues and sculptures.

Charles Bridge has become an important part of Europe's trade routes, the site of the martyrdom of St. John of Nepomuk and the battle with the Swedes. It attracts millions of tourists from around the world every year.

Niue / One Dollar Silver 2020 Prague - Charles Bridge - 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: NIUE ISLAND · 2020 · ELIZABETH II · 1 DOLLAR ·.

Below the portrait and on the left, the mint mark of the Czech Mint - a crowned monogram of the letters ČM (Česká mincovna).
