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 second design in the Icon series issued by the Pressburg Mint, and the first of the series issued in gold. The mint says about the coin:
Icon in its many meanings - as a Greek word for image, as a work of art, as a characteristic of a famous person or a thing that represents something of importance. In year 2021 we depict Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic painting Mona Lisa.

Obverse

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: TOKELAU 100 DOLLARS 2021 1 OZ FINE GOLD ELIZABETH II.

The inscription also includes the metal content - one troy ounce of gold.

The background is patterned with thin concentric 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.
