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 the rare one ounce of platinum (abbreviated as 1 oz Pt).

This coin is part of the legal tender bullion coin Truth Series by Sunshine Minting, US (called Sunshine Mint by most dealers).

The company says about it:
"The symbolism of the Lion was imparted unto the children of Jacob's youngest son, Judah, in the book of Genesis. Emblematic of all that is fierce, powerful, majestic, and influential, the Lion of Judah extends Lion's domain beyond the jungle and imparts these qualities unto all those in association.

The reverse side depicts a Lion's head; its fierce roar is made evident with the use of expert engraving as the details of his scowl are apparent for all to see. A crown adorns the Lion with the Aleph Tav, a symbol representative of both the covenant's leader and the unity of Judah's descendants. The image is enhanced as it is laid over a uniquely florally inspired coin field, which serves to enhance the beauty of the coin. A micro-engraved inscription is included on Lion's crown as an added security feature, which reads Send Out Your Light and Your Truth (a quote from the Bible, Psalm 43:3)."

The Roaring Lion design is featured for the first time in this all-new platinum reverse proof format.

Obverse
Niue / Platinum Ounce 2021 Roaring Lion of Judah - 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 250 DOLLARS 2021.

The reverse of the coin depicts the head of a majestic roaring lion.

On a diadem (or crown) on its head: את (א - Aleph, is the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet, and ת - Tav, is the last; the inscription is in Hebrew so reads fro right to left). The Aleph Tav is a symbol representative of both the covenant's leader and the unity of Judah's descendants.

At the base of the diadem, a micro-engraved inscription reads SEND OUT YOUR LIGHT AND YOUR TRUTH.

The lion is surrounded by a decorative floral pattern; the background is frosted.

Around below, the precious metal content: ONE TROY OUNCE .9995 FINE PLATINUM.
