CoinSilver Ounce 2023 Queen Elizabeth II Coronation

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 silver coin commemorates the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation.

Elizabeth II was born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary of the House of Windsor in London on April 21, 1926. On February 6, 1952, she ascended the throne at the age of 25 and was crowned queen on June 2, 1953, at Westminster Abbey. She was constitutional monarch of 16 sovereign states known as "Commonwealth Realms", including their territories and dependent territories, head of the 53-state Commonwealth of Nations, and secular head of the Anglican Church of England.

Queen Elizabeth II was the longest reigning monarch to date and the first ever to celebrate a platinum jubilee. She died at the age of 96 surrounded by her closest family members at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

Obverse
Tokelau / Silver Ounce 2023 Queen Elizabeth II Coronation - obverse photo

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 2023 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.
