Silver Ounce 2022 Australia at Night - Barn Owl, Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Australia at Night - Barn Owl

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 various animals.

The Barn Owl coin is the seventh design in the Australia at Night series of proof coins. The coin has a stylish black finish (probably rhodium plating).

The Australian Barn Owl (Tyto delicatula) is nocturnal and preys mainly on mice, rats, lizards, frogs, bats and insects. During the day it stays in tree hollows or rock crevices. As a very adaptable species, the occurrence of the barn owl is not limited to certain habitats. Thus, the owl is common in forests and steppes, but also in rocky or populated areas. A typical feature of the Australian Barn Owl is the pure white facial veil. It reaches a body size of up to 36 centimetres and a weight of up to 450 grams.

Obverse
Niue / Silver Ounce 2022 Australia at Night - Barn Owl - 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 small 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 2022 · ONE DOLLAR · 1 OZ 999 SILVER ·.

The inscription around the rim also incorporates the precious metal content. "1 OZ 999 SILVER" means "one troy ounce of 99.9% silver".
