Gold Ounce 2022 Equilibrium, Coin from Tokelau
CoinGold Ounce 2022 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 fifth design in the Equilibrium series of bullion coins by the Pressburg Mint, and the second one issued in gold. The coins in the series have a new design every year and are about balance - equilibrium - between technology and humanity.

The Mint says about it:
The yin-yang is an especially important and popular representation of harmony, sprouting from the rich Asian tradition in philosophy. Humanity has already explored much of our planet Earth. Now, we are not only focusing outwards into space, but inwards into our consciousness as well. What is the relationship between our own selves and the great vastness beyond?

Tokelau / Gold Ounce 2022 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 2022 1 oz FINE GOLD 9999.

The inscription also includes the metal content, one troy ounce of 99.99% gold.

The background is patterned with geometric forms made of thin lines.
