Silver Ounce 2021 Lord of the Rings - Sauron, Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Ounce 2021 Lord of the Rings - Sauron

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 famous famous movie characters.

This coin is part of a New Zealand Mint series dedicated to characters from the Lord of the Rings books and films, and features Lord Sauron.

The Mint says about it:
"The Ring-wielding Dark Lord Sauron features on this intricately engraved 1oz silver coin. On one side it shows the Dark Lord himself, as he appeared in the movie The Fellowship of the Ring, along with the Dark Tower and a gilded version of the One Ring in the foreground.

The legal tender status of this stunning collectible coin is confirmed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy on the obverse side.

The coin arrives in a display-ready wooden case which is placed inside a themed box showing the original coin image, in colour, on the base. A Certificate of Authenticity, including the coin’s unique serial number, guarantees the pure quality of the silver and the limited mintage of 3,000 coins. This is an outstanding collectible for any fan, a befitting memento to the extraordinary Lord of the Rings™ trilogy."

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 TWO DOLLARS 2021.
