CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee

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 coins under its jurisdiction, such as this 1 oz (one ounce) silver coin.

This gold coin commemorates the Platinum Jubilee (70th anniversary) of Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the throne.

On 6 February 1952, at the age of 25, she ascended the throne for the first time and was crowned Queen on 2 June 1953 at Westminster Abbey. The ceremony, with the exception of the anointing and communion, was televised for the first time. Since then, Elizabeth II has been the constitutional monarch of 16 sovereign states known as "Commonwealth Realms", including their territories and dependent areas. She is also head of the Commonwealth of Nations, which comprises 53 states, and secular head of the Anglican Church of England. Queen Elizabeth II was the longest reigning monarch as at the time the coin was issued.

Obverse

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 5 DOLLARS 1oz 999 Ag.

The inscription around the rim also incorporates the precious metal content - one troy ounce of 99.9% silver; Ag is abbreviated from Argentum, the Latin word for silver.

Below the portrait is a representation of the national flag of Tokelau.
