Volcanoes are some of the most awe-inspiring natural phenomena on Earth, inspiring both respect and fear through their majestic but destructive power. In J.R.R. Tolkien’sThe Lord of the Rings,an epic fantasy tale that revolved around a source of powerful and terrible magic, it was a volcanic setting that suggested itself as the home of the story’s main antagonist. One of the most active volcanoes in the world, Stromboli Island, became the model for the dreaded Mount Doom, an iconic locale now paid tribute by the New Zealand Mint’s 2022 Niue Lord of the Rings Mount Doom 3 oz Silver Coin.
The 2022 Niue Lord of the Rings Mount Doom Silver Coin features detailed engravings accentuated by a gorgeous matte antiqued finish. Provident Metals tracks and fully insures each shipment, which comes nestled in velvet in a secure acrylic capsule inside a themed display case. A unique Certificate of Authenticity specifies each coin’s number in this exclusive limited mintage.
The late Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy dominates the coin’s obverse side, confirming it as the legal tender of Niue. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TEN DOLLARS” and “2022.”
Mount Doom and the blasted countryside surrounding it appear on the reverse as seen in the famous Peter Jackson film adaptations of The Lord of the Rings.The copyright and trademark of New Line Productions appears at the rim along with verification of the coin’s weight and silver content.
First inspired by the regular eruptions of Stromboli Island off the Sicilian coast, Mount Doom in the writings of Tolkien was a fearsome and hostile place that was a natural home to evil and destructive creatures for most of its existence. In the definitive big screen adaptations ofThe Lord of the Ringsby New Line Cinema, the “part” of this terrifying setting was “played” by Mount Ngauruhoe, a stratovolcano whose oppressive and threatening atmosphere would be identified with its fictional counterpart for a whole generation of fans. That real-world mountain now inspires in its own turn the look of Mount Doom on the latest New Zealand Mint collectible to be dedicated to the franchise.
