CoinSilver Ounce 2021 Chibi - Severus Snape

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 Severus Snape, a character from the Harry Potter books and movies.

The Mint says about it:
"Hogwarts™ Potions Professor, Severus Snape™, appears in the Chibi art style on this 1oz pure silver coin. It has been shaped and coloured to resemble the Dark Arts master - recognisable by his long, greasy hair, black robes and a scowl.

On the obverse of the coin, you can see the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, to confirm it as legal tender.

The coin forms part of the officially licensed Harry Potter™ Chibi™ Coin Collection and has a limited mintage of only 2,000.

A holographic sticker placed on the box, alongside the Certificate of Authenticity, confirms the coin’s unique serial number. Protected by a custom-made case to fit its unique shape, the coin can be admired through a large window in the box - perfect for display."

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).

Above the effigy is the monarch's legend, on two lines separated by a horizontal line: ELIZABETH II NIUE. Below the effigy, also on two lines separated by a horizontal line, the face value and date of issue: 2021 2 DOLLARS.

In the lower part, the precious metal content: 1 oz 999 Fine Silver (one ounce of 99.9% silver), below which the copyright and trade mark acknowledgement: HARRY POTTER © & TM WBEI. (s21).
