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 specially shaped coin features the mask from the horror film Friday the 13th.
The Mint says about it:
Created in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, this hauntingly wonderful 1oz pure silver coin depicts a frosted image of Jason’s hockey mask, synonymous with the Camp Crystal Lake’s mass murderer. To further enhance the design, some flashes of mirror finish and a coloured engraving of the film’s name, Friday the 13th, have been added - It is sure to give you chills to the core! On the obverse side, you can see the Public Seal of Niue, which confirms that it is a legal tender coin.
The custom-designed packaging includes artwork of the psycho killer to complement the coin inside, which is tucked in black velvet. Each box has a Certificate of Authenticity printed on it, along with confirmation of the coin’s unique serial number in the limited 2,000 mintage.
