CoinSilver Five Ounces 2012 The Last Supper

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 in standard bullion sizes - including this very large five ounces of silver format (abbreviated as 5 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum).

“The Last Supper” was the final meal that, according to Christian belief, Jesus shared with his twelve apostles in Jerusalem before his crucifixion. Christians commemorate the Last Supper on Maundy Thursday. Moreover, “The Last Supper” provides the scriptural basis for the Eucharist, also known as the "Holy Communion" or "The Lord's Supper".

The three Synoptic Gospels and the first Epistle to the Corinthians include the account of the institution of the Eucharist (and a new covenant) in which Jesus takes bread, breaks it and gives it to the disciples, saying: "This is my body which is given for you". The Gospel of John does not include this episode, but tells of Jesus washing the feet of his apostles, and has a detailed farewell discourse by Jesus, calling the apostles who follow his teachings "friends and not servants", as he prepares them for his departure. Scholars have looked at “The Last Supper” as the source of early Christian Eucharist traditions.

The obverse of the coin shows at its centre the crowned bust of Queen Elizabeth II wearing a pearl necklace, facing right (her effigy known as the "Third Portrait", by Raphael David Maklouf).

The designer's initials are usually incuse in tiny letters on the neck truncation when this portrait is used, but they are not displayed here.

Around above, the monarch's legend, the face value and date of issue: ELIZABETH II · NIUE · 10 DOLLARS · 2012 ·.

Reverse
Niue / Silver Five Ounces 2012 The Last Supper - reverse photo

The reverse depicts The Last Supper of Jesus and his disciples, in a style reminiscent of icons in Orthodox shrines. The characters are designed to match the original icon and offset themselves against the reflecting silver proof background.

In gold letters above, the inscription ТАЙНАѦ ВЕЧЕРѦ (transcribed Taynaya vecherya - literally, The Secret Supper), in old style Cyrillic known as Church Slavonic, which is still used on icons in Slavic countries.
