Gold Ounce 2021 Equilibrium, Coin from Tokelau
CoinGold Ounce 2021 Equilibrium

Tokelau, known previously as the Tokelau Islands, is a dependent territory of New Zealand in the southern Pacific Ocean. It uses the New Zealand Dollar as circulation currency, but has been issuing a variety of non-circulating coins since 1978. These are denominated in dollars or "Tala" (the local word for dollar) and cents.

The country has also authorised some foreign mints to issue non circulating bullion coins under its jurisdiction, such as this 1 oz (one ounce) gold coin.

This is the fourth design in the Equilibrium series of bullion coins by the Pressburg Mint, and the first one issued in gold. The coins in the series have a new design every year and are about balance - equilibrium - between technology and humanity. This is the first year when the series was also issued in gold.

Obverse
Tokelau / Gold Ounce 2021 Equilibrium - 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 - TOKELAU 2021 100 DOLLARS.

The background is patterned with thin curved lines. The date of issue 2021 is divided by the portrait. Divided year of issue is one of the distinguishing features of the historical Pressburg Mint, after which the modern mint is named.

The design uses the approach of balancing matte and polished lines to create a visual effect representing the yin-yang symbol at the centre of the reverse.

Around above, the name of the series - EQUILIBRIUM. Around below, the metal content: 1 oz FINE GOLD 9999 (one troy ounce of 99.99% gold).
