Sima Yi was a legendary Chinese warrior who lived during the Three Kingdoms era. He was a military general and also a governor of Cao Wei. This was one of the three states that fought for power during the time of the Three Kingdoms. The other competing states were Shu Han and Sun Wu. Yi defended his state from numerous invasions, and his success ultimately led to the establishment of the Jin Dynasty in the year 266.
Queen Elizabeth II is found on the obverse of 2021 2 oz Antique Silver Sima Yi Famous Chinese Warriors Coins.

There are inscriptions on the border that read Niue Island, 2021, Elizabeth II, Five Dollars, Ag .999.
