The Shire has been an iconic fantasy locale ever since The Hobbit was first published in 1937, and its everyman heroes formed the heart of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. These influential novels by J.R.R. Tolkien came to find new generations of fans with blockbuster cinematic adaptations filmed in New Zealand, where the sets brought the Hobbit-holes and rustic vistas to life in loving detail. The New Zealand Mint commemorates this legacy with the 2022 1/4 oz Gold Niue The Shire Coin, an exclusive limited issue now available from Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Comes in a themed and compact box, encased in velvet!
  • Issued in 2022 by the NZ Mint in cooperation with Warner Bros. Consumer Products!
  • Limited mintage of only 300 coins!
  • Consists of One-Quarter Troy ounce of .9999 Fine Gold.
  • Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Face value of $25 (NZD) issued by Niue.
  • Obverse side features a legal tender effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse side features a Hobbit-hole, a characteristic of homes in the Shire.

The 2022 Gold Niue The Shire Coin celebrates the golden, sunny vistas of the Shire in fine gold with detailed artwork and comes in themed box packaging, nestled in velvet and designed to be angled for optimal display. Its Certificate of Authenticity identifies each coin’s unique place in the mintage, and your shipment is fully insured by Provident Metals. With an extremely limited supply of just three hundred items, it’s important to order early.

Hobbit-holes were the cozy underground homes of the diminutive citizens of the Shire, described in luxuriant detail in Tolkien’s books and built with exacting attention to those details on the blockbuster film sets of Peter Jackson’s adaptations. The coin’s artwork captures the front door and yard of one of these delightful residential nooks, which epitomized comfortable prosperity and a simple country lifestyle. The film sets that recreated these Hobbit-holes are still preserved as tourist attractions in New Zealand.

The obverse features a legal tender effigy of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. It’s joined by the inscriptions “Queen Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “25 Dollars,” and “2022.”

A Hobbit-hole appears on the reverse. It’s accompanied by the copyright and trademark of New Line Productions and the inscription “1/4 oz 9999 Fine Gold.”
