CoinSilver Ounce 2022 The Jungle Book - Shere Khan

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 characters and themes from popular culture.

The third silver coin from the Czech Mint's four-part miniseries inspired by Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book features the tiger Shere Khan.

The Bengal tiger Lungri was born with a lame leg and perhaps that is why he grew up to be a bitter tyrant with a lust for power. To strike fear into the hearts of the animal inhabitants of the Indian jungle, he took the name Sher Khan - King of the Tigers - and began hunting the most feared prey of all - human. Once he decided to kill, no one could escape him. Only a human cub, protected by a wolf pack, managed to escape. The man-eating tiger vowed to correct his mistake and one day hunt down the boy named Mowgli.

When force failed, the cunning Sher Khan used intrigue to break up the wolf pack. He convinced the young wolves to overthrow the old leader, Akela, and hand over their protégé to him. Then Mowgli showed that he was not only a wolf, but also a man, and drove the tiger away with fire. Finally, the two enemies clashed once more - in a fight to the death...

Obverse
Niue / Silver Ounce 2022 The Jungle Book - Shere Khan - 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). To the left of the portrait, the mint mark of the Czech Mint - a crowned monogram of the letters ČM (Česká mincovna).

The portrait is smaller than usual and is surrounded by a jungle scene.

On three lines horizontally below, the monarch's legend, the date and the face value: ELIZABETH II 2022 NIUE ISLAND 1 DOLLAR.
