Silver Ounce 2023 Icon - Queen Elizabeth II, Coin from Niue
CoinSilver Ounce 2023 Icon - Queen Elizabeth II

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.

This is the fourth design in the Icon series of premium bullion coins by the Pressburg Mint, and the first one issued for Niue (the earlier editions were for Tokelau). The coins in the series have a new design every year and are about the beauty of mathematics. The 2023 design is dedicated to the memory of Queen Elizabeth II.

The mint says about it:
The Greek word for image, a work of art, a famous person or something of importance. These all are meanings of the word “icon”.

Obverse
Niue / Silver Ounce 2023 Icon - Queen Elizabeth II - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin features the official Public Seal of Niue.

It has an inner circle of hiapo designs, representing the fonua (land), within which are stylised designs of a tree, representing life and tagata Niue (the people of Niue), surrounded by an outer circle in the form of a traditional Niuean garland of 14 seashells (representing the 14 villages of Niue), and crowned with St Edward's Crown (of the United Kingdom), representing the sovereign as head of state.

Around above between the two circles, the inscription PUBLIC SEAL OF NIUE. Below, a ribbon carries the motto ATUA NIUE TUKULAGI on two lines (meaning "God, Niue Eternally"), below which two crossed katoua (Niue fighting clubs).

Around above, the name of the country and the date of issue: NIUE 2023. Around below, the face value 2 DOLLARS.
