The Auspicious Koi bullion coin series offers collectors a variety of options when buying silver coins. This series offers three major options, all of which have proof visuals and an ultra-high-relief strike. Further, the coins are all oval-shaped to capture the sense of a koi pond. In this listing, you will find a gilded version of the proof coin. Provident Metals currently has 2022 Proof Niue Auspicious Koi 1 oz Silver Coins available to you for purchase online with 24-karat gold layers.
When you purchase a 2022 Proof Niue Auspicious Koi 1 oz Silver Coin online from Provident Metals, you will receive a beautiful coin with individual packaging. The coins are held in clear presentation boxes so you can always see the designs of the coin. The coin and case come with a Certificate of Authenticity as well.
These particular coins are ultra-high-relief strikes with greater visual depth in the background field and improved 3D relief on the design elements. The coins also come with a thin application of 24-karat gold. This gilded layer creates contrast with 24-karat gold over the silver designs of the coin. Specifically, you will find these layers on the coins with the tails of the fish gilded in the obverse design and the upper portions of the bodies gilded on the reverse.
The obverse side of the 2022 Proof Niue Auspicious Koi Silver Coin features an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II above two koi fish. This portrait of the Queen is set at the top of the field and captures Ian Rank-Broadleys 1998 design of the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. There are two koi beneath her with the aforementioned gilded layer. Inscriptions on this field include 1 OZ 999 FINE SILVER, ELIZABETH II, NIUE, TWO DOLLARS, and 2022.
On the reverse face of 2022 Proof Niue Koi 1 oz Silver Coins are two koi fish. These fish are swimming beneath a lily that floats along the top of the water. Koi fish are common in ornamental ponds in both public and private gardens.
The Japanese began specialized breeding to develop the domesticated koi fish for use in ornamental garden ponds. Though this work started in Niigata, Japan, in the early 19th century, the outside world didnt learn about the fish until 1914 when the fish were exhibited at an annual exposition in Tokyo.
