Silver Ounce 2021 King Arthur - Excalibur, Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Ounce 2021 King Arthur - Excalibur

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 popular characters from myths, legends and tales.

The second silver coin in the the Czech Mint four-part miniseries inspired by the legend of King Arthur commemorates the story of the Lady of the Lake and the sword named Excalibur.

Two legendary blades, which are often confused, are associated with Arthur's fate. The first is known as the sword in the stone. Legend says that this weapon was struck in a rock, from which only the true heir to the throne could free it according to the prophecy of the wizard Merlin. A series of noble lords tried in vain; however, the simple squire Arthur, who had no idea of his noble origins, succeeded.

When King Arthur broke his sword in battle with King Pellinor, Merlin led him to the Lady of the Lake. This fairy gave Arthur a new sword, which provided his owner with extraordinary power - it made him an invincible warrior and an indisputable king of all the British. A miraculous blade called Excalibur served Arthur faithfully for a long time and helped him to overthrow his fateful sock Mordred in the battle of Camlann. However, the king himself was mortally wounded, and since no one else was worthy of holding his legendary weapon, it was returned to the lake.

The medal maker Asamat Baltaev, DiS., who is the author of the coin, depicted the Lake Lady, who emerges from the water and passes Excalibur to Arthur on the reverse side. Following the previous coin of the cycle, a cross is drawn in the background, which in combination with the circular circumference of the coin refers to the Celtic-Christian origin of the legend.

Obverse
Niue / Silver Ounce 2021 King Arthur - Excalibur - 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 · NIUE ISLAND · 1 DOLLAR · 2021 ·.

The mint mark of the Czech Mint - a crowned monogram of the letters ČM (Česká mincovna), is after the date.

Around the rim (which represents the mythical Round Table) are twelve shields, depicting (fanciful) Coats of Arms of the twelve Knights of the Round Table.

The reverse of the coin depicts King Arthur of the famous legend, in a richly decorated boat, receiving the sword Excalibur from the Lady of the Lake who is emerging from the waters, holding the sword in her right hand.

Around above left, the inscription EXCALIBUR; around above right, LADY OF THE LAKE.

Following the previous coin of the cycle, a cross ornamented in a Celtic pattern is drawn in the background, as a reference to the Celtic-Christian origin of the legend. In the lower right below the right arm of the cross (opposite the letters AK of LAKE), the designer's monogram.
