The New Zealand Mint adds to its distinguished series ofLord of the Ringscollectibles with the 2022 Proof Niue The Lord of the Rings Gollum 1/4 oz Gold Coin. Now on offer from Provident Metals, this beautiful golden commemorative coin features Gollum, a complicated antagonist who appeared in all four of J.R.R. Tolkien’s most famous books before he made the transition to the big screen and adopted an iconic look that became familiar to whole new generations of fans. The coin showcases the character at his most villainous and is sure to be prized by investors, collectors, and fans.
The 2022 Proof Niue The Lord of the Rings Gollum 1/4 oz Gold Coin features high-relief medallic artwork and a mirrored proof finish. It comes in a luxury, themed coin case with a display insert, and includes a Certificate of Authenticity that identifies each piece’s unique serial number. Provident Metals fully insures your shipment and recommends ordering early, given the very limited worldwide supply of these collectibles.
Gollum is a complicated villain with different sides to his personality, one of which is snarling and monstrous as seen in his image on the reverse side of this coin, rendered in high relief against a mirrored surface. Small supplementary inscriptions show the copyright and trademark of New Line Productions and verify the coin’s gold content.
On the obverse is a legal tender effigy of Queen Elizabeth II: the classic Ian Rank-Broadley design that has appeared on coinage in the British Commonwealth for decades. It’s accompanied by the inscriptions “Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “25 Dollars” and “2022.”
InThe Lord of the Rings,Gollum was a study in contrasts: by turns pitiable and dangerous, cruel and tormented, with hints of yearning for his old self before he happened by chance across a magic ring. That ring turned out to be the One Right of Power, a cursed artifact that prolonged his life and drove him mad with obsession: his “Precious,” which he pursued throughout both the books and the films until he came to an unexpected end. The artwork on this coin perfectly captures the twisted and suffering nature of Gollum, a character who proved surprisingly appealing to fans.
