Silver Ounce 2021 Chibi - Pluto, Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Ounce 2021 Chibi - Pluto

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 feature movie characters. Some are also in innovative shapes, such as "Chibi".

Chibi (ちび or チビ) is a Japanese slang word describing something short (a thing, an animal or a person). The term is widely used to describe a specific style of caricature where characters are drawn in an exaggerated way: small and chubby, with stubby limbs and oversized heads. Coins of this type look like cartoon characters and have their corresponding shape; they are also very thick for their size.

This coin features Pluto and is part of a series featuring Disney characters.

The Mint says about it:
Depicting Disney Mickey Mouse’s lovable mutt for over 90 years, this 1oz pure silver coin is shaped and coloured to show Pluto as he bounds along, ears up and a joyful look on his face. The obverse of the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as confirmation that is legal tender in Niue.

The coin arrives in modern Mickey & Friends themed packaging complete with a window for easy display. Naturally, Pluto features front and centre on the box. Flip it open to find the coin inside protected by a custom-made case, so it can be easily removed for handling. On the reverse of the box, there is a holographic sticker confirming the coin’s unique number in the mintage of only 10,000 and the Certificate of Authenticity.

Obverse
Niue / Silver Ounce 2021 Chibi - Pluto - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin shows at its centre 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 are the monarch's legend, face value and date of issue: ELIZABETH II NIUE TWO DOLLARS 2021.

In the lower part, the precious metal content: 1 oz 999 Fine Silver (one ounce of 99.9% silver), below which the copyright acknowledgement: © Disney.
