In all versions of his character both in the books by J.R.R. Tolkien and the definitive movie adaptations by Peter Jackson, Gollum is defined by his obsession with a magic ring which he calls his “Precious.” Later revealed to be the One Ring of Power, key to the evil power of the Dark Lord Sauron, it had been in his possession for centuries during which it twisted his mind and body, and the character design in the films showed these effects brilliantly.
This coin’s reverse side captures the snarling madness of Gollum in high-relief medallic artwork against a mirrored proof finish background. It also verifies the gold content and carries the copyright and trademark of New Line Productions.
The obverse side features an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, confirming it as legal tender. It’s joined by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “25 Dollars” and “2022.”
