Silver Ounce 2011 Kagaya - Capricorn, Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Ounce 2011 Kagaya - Capricorn

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 - typically, one ounce of silver (abbreviated as 1 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum). Many of these have a Zodiac-inspired theme.

This rectangular silver ounce coin featuring the sign Capricorn is part of a twelve-coin series dedicated to the Signs of the Zodiac and illustrated, in full colour, with drawings by famed Japanese artist Yutaka Kagaya.

The tenth sign of the Zodiac is climbing up, rising from stone to stone. Always forward. Capricorn is ambitious and determined and extremely dedicated to his/her aims - never satisfied until reaching the top. Capricorns can be found in every area where they can push forward and get the satisfaction of his/her secret ambitions. Capricorns are clever, insightful and practical people. They show quick and decisive actions only when it comes to their personal interests. Capricorns are excellent strategists, calculating all possible scenarios and always insured themselves in case of the plan failure. They possess vivid organisational skills. The decisions Capricorn takes slowly, but always deliberately.
