Lions have loomed large in the human imagination since small clans of our ancestors shared the savannahs of prehistory with them tens of thousands of years ago. Since then, they have become a source of an extraordinarily diverse range of cultural symbols across the world, but their ferocity and their status as King of Beasts have always remained in the foreground. The New Zealand Mint celebrates this majestic predator with the latest entry in the Fierce Nature collection, the 2022 Niue Lion 2 oz Silver Coin.
The 2022 Niue Lion Silver Coin showcases detailed, ultra high-relief medallic artwork with a lustrous antiqued finish. Provident Metals fully insures each and every shipment against any possibility of loss or damage. It ships in a boldly-designed display case, and we recommend early ordering due to the limited supply in this exclusive mintage.
An official effigy of Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the coin’s obverse side, confirming its standing as legal tender. It’s accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “FIVE DOLLARS,” and “2022,” along with a confirmation of the coin’s weight and silver content.
The sculpted head of a roaring lion comprises the reverse side, engraved in vividly realistic detail. The antique finish brings out every aspect of its countenance, right down to its whiskers and fangs.
Called the King of Beasts and the King of the Jungle, the lion has riveted human attention for thousands of years due to its grace, strength, and majestic appearance. Its hold on our imaginations has made it a worldwide cultural symbol, inspiring everything from political and religious symbolism to literary creations across centuries. The New Zealand Mint’s new limited-mintage collection is a celebration of this fierce predator at its most striking and fearsome.
