CoinSilver Ounce 2021 Vivat Humanitas

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 third 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:
“Where words fail, music speaks.”
- Hans Christian Andersen

The design in the Vivat Humanitas series point out the idea of humanity that keeps on advancing and delivers impressive achievements despite all conflicts and differences. In this issue we are celebrating music as the universal and unique language of mankind.

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

Obverse
Tokelau / Silver Ounce 2021 Vivat Humanitas - obverse photo

The obverse design of the coin features 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 smaller than usual and is located to the right of the centre; it is surrounded by a stylised piano keyboard.

The rest of the surface features music-related symbols, including symbols of notes, the representation of an audio wave above left, and music lines on which is written 1 oz (one troy ounce) and Ag 999 (99.9% silver) below.

Below left, the legend of the monarch on two lines: ELIZABETH II TOKELAU.

In four of the corners, more musical symbols: eighth note, common time, chord, coda.

The background of the centre imitates vinyl record grooves.
