The New Zealand Mint’s Tarot Cards series commemorates the trump cards of the first sets of playing cards to be introduced to Europe, in the 15th century. This extensive set of trump cards eventually gained allegorical and occult significance and came to be used in reading fortunes; today, they’re called the Major Arcana. The sixth card in this unique set is The Lovers, subject of the 2022 Niue Tarot Cards The Lovers 1 oz Silver Coin which is now on offer from Provident Metals.
Featuring an unusual and beautiful rectangular design and richly-detailed artwork, the 2022 Niue Tarot Cards The Lovers Silver Coin is sure to be a prized item for collectors and for enthusiasts of the Tarot. Provident Metals ships this item to you, fully insured against damage or loss, in an elegant navy-blue box designed to open like a book. Inside is a Certificate of Authenticity that identifies each piece’s unique number as part of the limited mintage, along with a summary of the card’s traditional meaning.
The coin’s obverse side features a profile portrait Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as it commonly appears on Commonwealth currency. It’s surrounded by an elaborate border and accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “2022,” and “2 DOLLARS.”
The reverse side features The Lovers, the sixth card of the Major Arcana of the Tarot, in a vividly-colorized allegorical image that depicts them as mermaids. They are framed by a heart-shaped backdrop, surrounded by a border of geometric designs and joined by the inscriptions “VI” and “THE LOVERS.”
Tarot decks started out as simple playing cards used to play a series of popular trick-taking games. As a simplified kind of playing card deck became more popular, though — one that preserved the four suits of the Tarot but that cut down considerably on the number of trump cards — the Tarot drifted into a new role. The twenty-one trumps of what came to be called the Major Arcana acquired occult meaning and became a tool for cartomancy, fortune-telling by the use of cards. In that rich web of meaning, The Lovers signify choice about relationships with others and with the self.
