Silver Ounce 2022 Chibi - Knight Templar, Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Chibi - Knight Templar

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.

The Mint says about this coin:
This coin showcases a Knight Templar, a warrior from the ancient, elite fighting force famed for their bravery, dedication, and piety. It forms part of our Warriors of History Chibi Coin Series.

The Templar is shown wearing his traditional white robes with a red cross, and ready for battle with a helmet and shield - also bearing the sign of the cross. This is a 1oz pure silver coin with the obverse side bearing the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This confirms that, despite its shape and colour, this is still a legal tender coin! The box has been designed with more imagery to complement the coin and a large window to make display a breeze. Inside, the coin is further protected by a specially made acrylic capsule. On the back of the box, you will find a Certificate of Authenticity and the coin’s unique serial number.

Obverse
Niue / Silver Ounce 2022 Chibi - Knight Templar - obverse photo

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 date of issue and the face value: 2022 2 DOLLARS.

In the lower part, the precious metal content: 1 oz 999 Fine Silver (one ounce of 99.9% silver).
