Silver Ounce 2018 Equilibrium, Coin from Tokelau
CoinSilver Ounce 2018 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, and has also authorised some foreign mints to issue bullion coins under its jurisdiction.

The silver ounce (abbreviated as 1 oz) is an internationally popular format, and is denominated as Five Dollars.

This coin is the first issue in the Equilibrium series of bullion by the Pressburg Mint.

The mint says about it:
Harmony has been a popular topic since the philosophers of ancient Asia, who depicted its play with the yin-yang symbol. With the Equilibrium coin, we point out the need for harmony and balance (between technology and nature, civilisation and environment, money and time, work and rest, AI and human intelligence etc.). In this series we will depict symbols of balance adapted in accordance with the relevant idea.

The Equilibrium coin is the very first silver investment coin from Bratislava, as well as the first silver coin since the times of the widely used silver toliars or dinars made in the historical Mint of Bratislava.

Coins are minted using LBMA-certified 1oz 999+/1000 silver blanks, undergoing a thorough cleaning process before striking.

Obverse
Tokelau / Silver Ounce 2018 Equilibrium - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin shows in a small circle on the right 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 tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

The portrait is on a background of floral motifs. Around above, ELIZABETH II; around below, TOKELAU.

The rest of the surface is patterned like a circuit board; in a diamond on the left, scales.

In large letters around above, the name of the series EQUILIBRIUM. Around below, the date of issue 2018, on both side of which the same in Roman numerals: MMXVIII.
