It is modeled after the Silver French Trade Piastre, which was widely used in the Far East. The French issued the coin in 1885 to exercise control over the money supply in Indochina. Just 1,500 of these were struck, each one on a planchet of .999 fine silver. It will arrive in GEM Proof condition.

Exquisite Seated Liberty Design

The obverse bears a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley. The famous portrait, which has featured on coinage from several countries for more than two decades, shows the monarch wearing earrings and a tiara. Her name, "QUEEN ELIZABETH II," joins with the name of the issuing country, "NIUE ISLAND," the coin's face value, "1 DOLLAR," and its date, "2020," to encircle the image. Both the obverse and reverse have ornate patterns on the rim.

At the center of the reverse is Liberty, who is seated balancing a fasces with her right hand. She wears her radiate crown, which has seven rays, representing the seven seas and seven continents through which freedom is meant to spread. Crops grow to the left. The image is encircled by the inscriptions "THE EAST INDIA COMPANY" and "TRADE DOLLAR."
