2015 Tokelau $5 1 oz. Proof Colorized Silver Creatures of Myth and Legend Aries
The 2015 Tokelau Aries $5 Colorized Silver Proof is one of the early editions in the Creatures of Myth and Legend Series issued by the small island territory of Tokelau. The series takes its inspiration from the Chinese Lunar calendar and features related animals in its designs. Aries is the first astrological sign in the Zodiac and is represented by the Ram. This is one of five Aries coins in the series, each of which bears variations of the same design. Only 2,500 proof versions of this beautiful coin were minted, making it an exquisite piece for numismatic collectors.
Tokelau uses the New Zealand dollar as its currency, but the tiny island nation issues commemorative coins to provide extra income - as Tokelau has the smallest economy of any country in the world. An estimated small mintage of only 2,500 2015 Tokelau Creatures of Myth & Legend Aries Silver Proof Coins were produced at Germany’ Mayer Mint. The 2015 Tokelau Aries $5 Colorized Silver Proof is made of .999 pure silver and struck using unparalleled standards.
Design of the Creatures of Myth and Legend – Aries Coin
The reverse of the coin shows a ram leaping across the sky with its horns tightly curled. The constellation Aries is outlined in the background. Tokelau is an official territory of New Zealand, which is demonstrated by Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. Under the portrait is a tackle box that is popular with fishermen in Tokelau. The Christian influence on the territory is displayed with the inscription Tokelay Mo Te Ayua (translated as Tokelau for God) along with the value, denomination and issuing country.
The coin’s beauty, limited mintage and its place in the ongoing series make it a highly collectible numismatic product. The 2015 Tokelau Aries $5 Colorized Silver Proof has the additional benefit of being an appealing silver investment, is a valuable addition to any portfolio and a unique gift for astrological enthusiasts or your favorite Aries!
