CoinSilver Ounce 2022 E.T. 40th Anniversary, Sphere

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 movie characters.

This coloured spherical coin, produced under license by The Coin Company Australia, celebrates the 40th anniversary of the iconic E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial film release.

According to Stephen Spielberg, the concept for E.T. evolved out of a question he asked himself about what if an alien from Close Encounters of the Third Kind had stayed behind as a sort of exchange student. He then imagined the character from the perspective of his own childhood and the loneliness he felt during his parent's divorce. Thus, E.T. was created as a friendly extra-terrestrial being who was left behind on Earth, but aided by the young boy Elliot to return home. In the course of this encounter, a unique friendship would emerge to the benefit of both characters and the delight of audiences around the world.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial first premiered on 26 May 1982 at the Cannes Film Festival and later on 11 June 1982 across the United States. Its success was immediate, even surpassing the first Star Wars movie as the highest-grossing film of all time.

Niue / Silver Ounce 2022 E.T. 40th Anniversary, Sphere - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin features the official Public Seal of Niue.

It has an inner circle of hiapo designs, representing the fonua (land), within which are stylised designs of a tree, representing life and tagata Niue (the people of Niue), surrounded by an outer circle in the form of a traditional Niuean garland of 14 seashells (representing the 14 villages of Niue), and crowned with St Edward's Crown (of the United Kingdom), representing the sovereign as head of state.

Around above between the two circles, the inscription PUBLIC SEAL OF NIUE. Below, a ribbon carries the motto ATUA NIUE TUKULAGI on two lines (meaning "God, Niue Eternally"), below which two crossed katoua (Niue fighting clubs).

Above, the name of the country: NIUE. Below the seal, the face value TWO DOLLARS; divided by the seal, date of issue 2022.

Around above left, Ag 999 (99.9% silver); around above right, 1 oz (one troy ounce)..
