Silver Ten Ounces 2022 Slovakia Eagle, Coin from Niue - detailed information

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 - including the very large ten ounces of silver format (abbreviated as 10 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum).

This coin is part of the Slovakia Eagle ("Orol") range of premium bullion coins issued by the Czech Mint.

The Mint says about it:
World bullion coins tend to be dedicated to strong national symbols and the Eagle (Orol in Slovak), the first coin of its kind to be minted for the Slovak market, is no exception. The Slovaks have waited long and patiently for the opportunity for self-determination - like a bird of prey circling in the sky above the majestic Tatra Mountains looking for its prey. It is no wonder that Slovak poets and revivalists of the 19th century regarded the eagle as a kindred spirit and that Ľudovít Štúr himself named the cultural supplement of the Slovak National Newspaper "The Tatra Eagle" ("Orol tatránski" in Slovak). Despite the efforts of their foreign rulers, the Slovaks preserved their culture, language and character until they finally succeeded in winning their independence. The symbol of all they achieved was once again the eagle, which has always represented strength, victory, freedom and nobility, but also resurrection and new life.

The bird of prey, which represents the Christian kingdom of heaven, also refers to Slovak religious tradition. In 2022, all the variants of the investment coin were re-worked, but the main idea was preserved. The reverse side of the investment coin is dominated by the golden eagle, which is the master of the Tatras, with the magnificent mountain peak Kriváň rising behind it. The obverse side is then covered with ornaments of the Čičmanský pattern, which is a unique addition to Slovak folk architecture.

Obverse
Niue / Silver Ten Ounces 2022 Slovakia Eagle - 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: NIUE ISLAND ELIZABETH II - 25 DOLLARS - 2022 -.

The Queen's effigy is smaller than normal and is enclosed within an oval cartouche. Between that and the outer rim with the inscriptions, the background is covered with ornaments of the Čičmany pattern, which is unique to Slovak folk architecture.
