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 Vivat Humanitas (long live humanity) series issued by the Pressburg Mint based in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia.

The Mint says about it:
The Vivat Humanitas series celebrates achievements of humankind. The scientific method is a way of acquiring knowledge unique to our kind. Science has developed from proto-scientific traditions of alchemy and astrology. With this release, we are pointing to this unique and exciting episode of our past, especially in the metallurgical area.
