Silver Ounce 2022 Lion and Hyena, Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Lion and Hyena

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 coins under the authority of Niue. Most of these are commemorative and collector issues 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). Those issued at prices much higher than their bullion value are separately listed in the Non-Circulating Legal Tender (NCLT) silver ounce section of the site.

Unlike them, this coin is targeted at bullion investors and was initially released at a price close to the value of its precious metal content.

The Lion vs Hyenas coin is the first issue in the Apex Predators Collection, and features a powerful lion in conflict with three hyenas.

Hyenas live in packs, the so-called clans. The individual clan members help each other and often attack their prey together. It often happens that lions want to dispute the hyenas their prey - although the hyenas are basically hardly afraid of the big cats and fight back, they have no chance against a full-grown lion.

Obverse
Niue / Silver Ounce 2022 Lion and Hyena - 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 tiny 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".
