Why buy this 2 oz Silver 2020 $5 Niue Mythical Dragons of the World - Norse Dragon?

The third release in the New Zealand Mint's Mythical Dragons Series, this Norse Dragon brings the mythology of the North to collectors. Beloved in the East but feared and opposed in the West, dragons permeate countless cultures. This coin's stunning imagery and themed packaging would make it a beautiful display piece in any collection. Part of a mintage of just 2,000 pieces, the coin was struck from 2 oz of .999 fine silver and has an antique finish.

Vibrant Norse Dragon Design

Ian Rank-Broadley's famous right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II graces the obverse. The image, which has appeared on coinage for more than two decades, shows the monarch wearing a tiara and earrings. Rank-Broadley's initials, "IRB," are inscribed at the base of the design. The monarch's name, "ELIZABETH II," joins the name of the issuing country, "NIUE," the coin's face value, "FINE DOLLARS," and the date, "2020," on the rim.

The reverse features a striking look at Fafnir, the Norse Dragon. The colorful beast, which has a reputation for greed and treachery, shows its fangs while Sigurd slays it. An inscription in the lower left notes the coin's weight and purity, "2 OZ 999 FINE SILVER."

Fitting Themed Packaging

The coin comes in its original packaging from the New Zealand Mint. That includes a book-style display case that is themed after an ancient dragon.
