Silver Ounce 2022 Mythical Creatures - Scarab, Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Mythical Creatures - Scarab

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).

This is the twelfth and final design in the Mythical Creatures series of premium bullion coins by the Czech Mint, and features the Egyptian Scarab.

The mint says about it:
"The scarabeus appears on the last silver coin of the Czech Mint from the twelve-part collector's series Mythical Creatures. A sacred Egyptian beetle called the scarabeus is known for rolling a ball in front of itself in which its offspring develop. Its relentless activity is reminiscent of the sun's pilgrimage across the sky, and so it has become a symbol of the god Re and the solar cycle.

For the ancient Egyptians, it was the personification of rebirth, believing that all scarabs were female and that all they needed to create new life was decaying droppings... The various representations of the scarab are among the most common archaeological finds, demonstrating its importance in ancient society. Necklaces or rings with motifs of the beetle brought wealth, luck and protection from evil to their wearers. Scarab statuettes accompanied mummies to the afterlife."

The reverse of the coin was designed by Mária Filová, and the obverse by Asamat Baltaev.

Obverse
Niue / Silver Ounce 2022 Mythical Creatures - Scarab - 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 small 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 · 2022 · NIUE ISLAND · 2 DOLLARS ·.

To the left of the portrait, the mint mark of the Czech Mint - a crowned monogram of the letters ČM (Česká mincovna).

The legend is in a style reminiscent of Ancient Greek script. The rim around the inscription is wide and is decorated with a Hellenic (Ancient Greek) geometric pattern.
