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 is the second issue in the Vivat Humanitas (long live humanity) series issued by the Pressburg Mint based in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. it is the first legal tender coin in the series - the first issue was a "silver round".

The mint says about it:
"You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty."
- Mahatma Ghandi

Coins in the Vivat Humanitas series point out the idea of humanity that keeps on advancing and delivers impressive achievements despite all conflicts and differences. Script and writing systems have evolved in different human civilisations. Communication in written form is one of major milestones in human development which has made humanity unique.

The coin is minted using LBMA-certified 1oz 999/1000 silver blanks, undergoing a thorough cleaning process before striking.
