Among the most iconic epicenters of evil in all fantasy fiction, Mount Doom is an unforgettable part of theLord of the Ringsbooks by J.R.R. Tolkien, a terrifying volcano dominating the blasted Plateau of Gorgorath which is perpetually shrouded in its ashes. The heart of the dark land of Mordor, it was brought to life on the big screen by Peter Jackson with images that became definitive for generations of fans. The New Zealand Mint partners with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to create a tribute to this dread locale with the 2022 Niue Lord of the Rings Mount Doom 1 oz Silver Coin.
The 2022 Niue Lord of the Rings Mount Doom Silver Coin commemorates the sinister volcano as seen in the classic New Line Cinema film adaptations, showcasing detailed engravings accentuated by a beautiful antique matte finish. It ships in an officially themed display case nestled in black velvet and protected by an acrylic capsule. A Certificate of Authenticity on the back confirms each coin’s unique number in an exclusive limited mintage.
The late Queen Elizabeth II dominates the coin’s obverse side, appearing in a familiar profile effigy that confirms it as legal tender of Niue. This is accompanied by inscriptions of the Queen, the coin’s face value, and the year and country of its issue.
The reverse side is dominated by the frightful scenery of Mount Doom, an ever-smoking volcanic landscape is seen in Peter Jackson’s definitive film adaptations ofThe Lord of the Rings.The copyright and trademark of New Line Productions appear at the rim beside confirmations of the coin’s weight and silver purity.
As with many locations in J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels, Mount Doom had a source of inspiration in the real world: the island of Stromboli off the southern coast of Italy. One of the most active volcanoes in the world and in almost-continual eruption since 1932, its spectacular fiery displays inspired Tolkien toimagine a similar peak surrounded by a blasted and ash-covered landscape suitable for the forces of darkness. The idea went on to influence countless similar locales in fantasy fiction before hitting the big screen in New Line Cinema’sLord of the Ringsmovies.
