Silver Ounce 2023 Alice's Tea Party, Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Ounce 2023 Alice's Tea Party

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.

This coin is part of a series continuing the Boston Tea Party commemoratives issued for Saint Helena, and features Alice's Tea Party.

The mint says about it:
250 years ago a fierce dispute about British taxation led a group of colonists to take action, pouring 342 chests of East India Company tea into the icy waters of Boston Harbour in an act of rebellion that became known as the "Boston Tea Party".

Nearly 100 years later one of the most beloved works of English literature, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, was published in 1865. As Alice tumbled headlong through the dizzying madness of Wonderland she found herself at an altogether different kind of Tea Party, hosted by the infuriating Mad Hatter.

This classic scene and its memorable characters were the work of Lewis Carroll, who died in 1898, 125 years after the historic protest in Boston Harbour. To mark these twin anniversaries British artist Rory Dobner, well known for his stylish illustrations of Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece, reimagines the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party aboard one of the British ships in Boston Harbour in December 1773, now riding a little higher in the water than it was the day before!

Join Alice, Mad Hatter and friends to celebrate the 250th Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party with this delightful, limited edition collection by renown British artist Rory Dobner.

Our motley crew are gathered on deck after the Sons of Liberty have made their powerful protest. As the harbour waters infuse with 40 tonnes of East India Company tea, the Mad Hatter, Dormouse, March Hare and Alice reflect on last night’s events over a refreshing brew of their own. But even by their own maddening standards, these characters are not quite who they seem to be...

Niue / Silver Ounce 2023 Alice's Tea Party - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin shows the bare (uncrowned) head of King Charles III facing left (his portrait by Jody Clark, but without the artist's initials).

Around, the monarch's legend, the face value and the date of issue: CHARLES III · NIUE · TWO DOLLARS · 2023 ·.

Obverse Inscription CHARLES III · NIUE · TWO DOLLARS · 2023 ·
Reverse
Niue / Silver Ounce 2023 Alice's Tea Party - reverse photo

The reverse depicts Alice's Tea Party from Alice in Wonderland, but in a surreal version featuring Alice as Sam Adams, the Mad Hatter as Mad King George, the March Hare as a Son of Liberty, and the Dormouse as the Tax Collector.

The characters are seated along a table on a ship, with part of the British flag visible near the mast. The Dormouse is writing The Boston Tea Party on a scroll.

Below the table, a crab, a snake, the date 1773, a chest with the East India Company heart logo (letters EIC and the number 4 on top), and an anchor..

In the background, a Boston church.
