CoinSilver Three Ounces 2022 Lord of the Rings - Helm's Deep

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, or are based on the troy ounce - for example, three ounces of silver (abbreviated as 3 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum).

This coin is part of a New Zealand Mint series dedicated to characters and themes from The Lord of the Rings books and films, and features Helm's Deep.

The Mint says about it:
Created in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, this 3oz silver coin presents the great fortress, Hornburg in Helm’s Deep, from The Lord of the Rings. It is fully engraved and antiqued, with relief added to enhance this powerful design.

It is made with .999 pure silver and includes an impressive 55mm diameter to show a wider view of this mighty stronghold. As legal tender, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II can be found on the obverse. This magnificent piece arrives nestled in velvet, inside a secure The Lord of the Rings-themed, box. Printed on it is a Certificate of Authenticity and the coin’s unique number in the mintage. The worldwide availability is limited to only 1,000 coins.

Obverse
Niue / Silver Three Ounces 2022 Lord of the Rings - Helm's Deep - 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 NIUE TEN DOLLARS 2022.
