Antique Silver Proof Aries with Original Capsule
To protect this coin, it was placed in a capsule by the Mayer Mint workers before being shipped. This original capsule is included and the coin has not been removed from it. This 2015 Tokelau Aries coin also comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity. The certificate is printed on paper with a classic brown tone that is similar to the look of an aged historical document.

In the background are a total of 4 rams.
2015 Tokelau Silver Antique Aries Coin Design
Since this silver Aries coin was issued for the country of Tokelau, one side displays a design of Queen Elizabeth II, as created by Ian Rank-Broadley. Below this depiction of Queen Elizabeth II is the official badge of Tokelau with their motto, which means Tokelau for the Almighty. The object seen in the badge of Tokelau is actually a tackle box. This side of the coin is an excellent example of how an antique finish can enhance the fine details of a design to make them easier to see with the naked eye. The inscriptions on this side read “ELIZABETH II,” “TOKELAU 2015,” “FIVE DOLLARS,” and “1 oz. 999 SILVER.”
The opposite side shows Aries the ram. Behind Aries is an arrangement of stars. The satin proof antique finish makes the fine details stand out here as well. This side of the coin has no inscriptions.
If you want to add some low mintage fine silver to your collection, this 2015 antique satin proof Aries coin from Tokelau is a great choice.
