Silver Ounce 2022 Bella Ciao, Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Bella Ciao

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 characters and themes from popular culture.

This coin commemorates Bella ciao - an Italian protest folk song from the late 19th century, modified and adopted as an anthem of the Italian resistance movement by the partisans who opposed nazi-fascism between 1943 and 1945 during their fight against the occupying forces of Nazi Germany allied to the fascist and collaborationist Italian Social Republic. Versions of "Bella ciao" continue to be sung worldwide as an anti-fascist hymn of freedom and resistance.

In 2017 and 2018, the song received renewed popularity due to the singing of "Bella ciao" multiple times in the Spanish television series Money Heist. The character Tokyo recounts in one of her narrations, "The life of the Professor revolved around a single idea: Resistance. His grandfather, who had fought against the fascists in Italy, taught him the song and he taught us." The song is played in emblematic moments in the series as a metaphor for freedom. The part 2 finale is also titled "Bella ciao".

Obverse
Niue / Silver Ounce 2022 Bella Ciao - obverse photo

The obverse features the "Public Seal of Niue" (it has to be noted that this is not the official seal...) at its centre. It has what looks like a plant arrangement at centre, within a double ornamental circle, itself surrounded by a circle of sea shells. This is crowned with St Edward's Crown (of the United Kingdom). Around above between the two, the inscription PUBLIC SEAL OF NIUE. Below that, a ribbon carries the motto ATUA NIUE TUKULAGI on two lines, below which two crossed katoua (Niue fighting clubs).

Around above the seal, 1 oz FINE SILVER 9999 (one troy ounce of 99.99% silver); around below, the name of the country and the date of issue: NIUE ISLAND 2022.

The background of the centre is textured with a fine mesh of thin lines.

Around the rim, on three lines, the full text of the song "Bella ciao" in its "partisan" version.
