Tokelau is a group of four atolls that are New Zealand territory. Many collector silver coins have been issued under the legal authority of Tokelau by the Pobjoy Mint, a private Mint in the UK, and especially by Treasures of Oz, an Australian company founded in 2008 that releases a wide range of collector coins that are minted by a private Mint in Germany. Treasures of Oz says its mission is to increase cultural understanding among nations.
Tokelau is best known for the line of Chinese Lunar year coins that began in 2012, which has continued to expand in recent years. Each year a range of different versions of that year's Lunar issue are released, which typically includes reverse proof, regular proof, colored, gilded, and antique silver coins. The designs that appear on these coins include some of the most well-regarded for that entire year's Lunar releases from various countries.
Tokelau silver coin releases also include the Creatures of Myth and Legend series, a Zodiac series, recent releases such as Messages of Love, Lady of Fortune, World's Most Romantic Cities, and others.
Silver coins from Tokelau are known for their high quality, pure silver content, use of interesting coin production techniques, and very attractive designs.
