A tiny country in the South Pacific Ocean with a population of just 1,600, the island of Niue lies 1,491 miles northeast of New Zealand within the triangle formed by Tonga, Samoa and the Cook Islands.
But despite its small size, Niue has recently emerged as a big player on the world's collectible coin market – releasing 99.9% pure silver coins with officially licensed designs that feature everything from the classic Star Wars characters to Disney favorites like Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Cinderella.
As a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, each Niue coin features Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse.
Silver Niue coins have been struck by the New Zealand Mint since 2008, and all are Niue legal tender. The New Zealand Mint has been minting legal tender commemorative coins, bullion and medallions for more than four decades. As New Zealand's only precious metal Mint and one of the first world Mints to adopt the 99.99% standard for gold coin purity, the Mint takes pride in its high quality design and production work, adding even more luster to each of Niue's distinctive silver coins.
