The obverse of this 2022 Silver Niue Year of the Water Tiger Coin starts with an image that’s well-known to almost any numismatist. It’s the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of the Queen of England, Elizabeth II. This right-facing portrait appears on coins across the globe and was the official British Royal Mint image for more than 15 years. On this coin, the effigy is frosted and presented against a stunning background of small round mirrors. The standard inscriptions spelling out the queen’s name, year of minting, face value and country are also frosted so they stand out against the mirrored field.
Even more unique is the reverse of the coin, which is simply an image of a tiger’s head. The image is created with a sort of modified pointillism by using various size round mirrors to depict the tiger. Because it’s the Year of the Water Tiger, the design is meant to look like raindrops coming together to form the image. It could also look a bit like a tiger stepping into or out of a storm.
The coin ships in a protective plastic capsule. The transparent coin capsule can be used to store or display the coin in your collection to help keep it in lovely condition. You also receive a custom presentation box that has the image of the Water Tiger on the top.
