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).

The Mint says about this coin:
The thirteenth issue from the collector-investment series of platinum coins, which pays homage to Czech monuments inscribed on the UNESCO list, is dedicated to the stud farm in Kladruby nad Labem.

The national stud farm in Kladruby nad Labem is a breeding station of the oldest original Czech horse breed. The Kladruber - massive carriage white horses with a typical hornbeam head - are elegant, persistent, reliable, easy to handle and very docile. The breeding of animals, which were specially bred for ceremonial purposes of the imperial court, began in the time of Rudolf II and continues for more than four centuries.

The Kladruby landscape with pastures and water canals has preserved its pre-industrial form. The reverse side of the coin from the studio of the medal maker Lenka Nebeská, DiS., is dominated by a view of the characteristic architecture of the stud farm, supplemented with a depiction of an Kladruber foal. The cub, which is born black and at first resembles a clumsy legged donkey, will turn into a majestic white horse not earlier than after seven years.

Obverse
Niue / Platinum Ounce 2021 UNESCO - Kladruby nad Labem - 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 · Pt999 NIUE ISLAND · 50 DOLLARS · 2021.

The effigy and legend are in a small circle. The rest of the centre of the obverse shows a collage of architectural elements from various Czech buildings inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Around left, the legend · ELIZABETH II ·; above right, Pt999 (99.9% platinum). Around below right, NIUE ISLAND · 50 DOLLARS · 2021.

In the lower left, the mint mark of the Czech Mint - a crowned monogram of the letters ČM (Česká mincovna).

There were twelve material monuments inscribed on the UNESCO list when the platinum series began to be published. This prestigious list expanded by two more Czech sights in 2019. They also appear on coins, but unfortunately do not fit into the wooden collector's case, which was created in 2017.
