The first person ever to win two Nobel Prizes, the only scientist ever to win those Prizes in multiple fields, and the first woman to win a Nobel Prize were all the same individual: the remarkable pioneer named Marie Curie. Her discoveries in the fields of physics and chemistry shaped the modern world’s understanding of radioactivity and radioactive isotopes, and she is featured on the 2022 Colorized Niue Women in History Marie Curie 1 oz Silver Coin.

The first coin in a new series from the New Zealand Mint, the 2022 Silver Colorized Niue Women in History Marie Curie Coin is a gorgeous showpiece of colorized artwork set against a mirror background. It arrives encased in black velvet inside a custom-designed luxury box package, and includes a Certificate of Authenticity that confirms the coin’s unique number in the mintage. It comes fully insured by Provident Metals, but we recommend ordering early, as this piece is sure to be in demand among collectors, investors, and historical enthusiasts alike.


Ian Rank-Broadley’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II appears on the coin’s obverse side to identify it as legal tender of Niue. It’s accompanied by inscriptions of the Queen’s name, the date and country of issue, and the face value.


Brilliant colorized artwork of the pioneering female scientist Marie Curie features on the coin’s reverse side, with a part of her Nobel Prize diploma in the background. Accompanying inscriptions include her name and signature and a verification of the coin’s weight and silver contents.


The Women in History series kicks off with a celebration of one the greatest female scientists known to history. Marie Curie is one of only two historical figures to win Nobel Prizes in two different scientific fields, physics and chemistry, and pioneered radiology and the discovery of the phenomenon of radioactivity, a term she herself coined. Among other accomplishments, she’s remembered for discovering the elements polonium and radium and for her early work in developing mobile radiography for conducting X-rays.
