World’s First Spherical Coin - Seven New Wonders of the World
This is a first in the history of coins. The Mint of Poland has struck this proof silver coin for the Island of Niue - completely spherical! The design is extraordinary, showing a seamless image of the world! In effect, this is a small silver globe. The design of the world is based off of the beautiful XVII-century hand-drawn map created by Dutch Cartographer Willem Janszoon Blaeu. This captures both the past and the present in this incredible design! To commemorate the 7 new wonders of the world, this coin was made from 7 oz. of silver, with a denomination of $7, and a mintage of 1,007 coins!
Design of the Proof Silver Seven New Wonders of the World Spherical Coin
This coin is completely round, with a diameter of 34 mm. While much smaller than you may expect, you will be surprised with its solid weight in your hand! The entire design is extremely detailed, and is the perfect representation of a globe. You can spend hours studying every tiny detail of this intricate creation! The location of each “new” wonder of the world is shown with a special Swarovski Element - a dark grey crystal, embedded in the silver. The top and bottom of the coin act as the obverse and reverse of the coin. The top is inscribed with “SEVEN DOLLARS” and “AG 999 7 OZ.” The bottom is inscribed with “NIUE ISLAND” and “2015.” Around the middle of the design is inscribed “SEVEN NEW WONDERS OF THE WORLD.”
Interestingly enough, this coin does not bear an image of Queen Elizabeth II on this coin, like all other Niue coins. It instead bears an image of the official Coat of Arms of New Zealand.
