Why add this NGC-graded 2017 Niue Great Cities: Shanghai Silver Proof to your collection?

The third release of the New Zealand Mint's Great Cities collection honors the city of Shanghai, located on the eastern coast of China. Established as a fishing village over one thousand years ago, Shanghai has grown to house a population of more than twenty-four million people. The 40 mm diameter 2017 Great Cities Shanghai proof is struck from 1 full Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, with a mintage limited to 3,000 coins issued by the nation of Niue.

Dramatic contemporary city design

The skyline of the great city of Shanghai appears on the reverse, with the distinct shape of the Oriental Pearl Tower dominating the foreground. Inscriptions include "SHANGHAI" and "1 OZ 999 FINE SILVER."

The portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II adorns the obverse, the artistry of sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, framed by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "NIUE," "TWO DOLLARS" and "2017."
