A gorgeous bullion range that provides plenty of innovative visual design, the Icon series of collectibles from Tokelau takes figures who have transcended mere fame as its subjects: the kinds of celebrities and pivotal figures whose importance to world culture far outlasts their lives. Indisputably, one of these is Marilyn Monroe, the luminous star who was hailed by both photographers and film directors as a natural genius in front of the camera. Offering up a unique blend of innocence and provocative sensuality, Monroe played an active role in creating and cultivating her enduring image and went on to become a sex symbol for the ages who continues to inspire new generations. Her legacy is celebrated by the third issue in the Icon series, the 2022 Tokelau Icon 1 oz Silver Coin.


  • Arrives in a secure plastic capsule!
  • Issued in 2022, third release in the Icons series!
  • Limited mintage of just 30,000 pieces for worldwide circulation!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
  • Face value of $5 (NZD) as legal tender of Tokelau.
  • The obverse side features an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • The reverse side features a complex abstract texture over a portrait of Marilyn Monroe.

The 2022 Tokelau Icon Silver Coin pays tribute to Monroe’s legend with sophisticated texturing and a brilliant proof-like finish, and is sure to be sought-after by discerning collectors and devoted fans alike. It comes in a secure plastic capsule, and Provident Metals fully insures each shipment against any possible mishap in transit.


The coin’s obverse side features a high-relief effigy of Queen Elizabeth II to verify it as legal tender. This is offset in spectacular fashion against a proof-like black background, accompanied by detailed texturing and the inscriptions “TOKELAU” and “5 DOLLARS,” “1 OZ FINE SILVER” and “QUEEN ELIZABETH II,” and “2022.”


The reverse side features a complex abstract texture in the foreground that contains the word “ICON” when seen from the right angle. There is a classic portrait of Marilyn Monroe in the background and a decorative silver-on-black texture at the rim.


“Icon” is originally a Greek word for “image,” and has almost always referred to various kinds of artistic images that were touchstones for religion or culture, and that could thus be flash points for controversy. Kings have been defacing icons of their predecessors for thousands of years, and the role of icons in religion became so fraught in the early Byzantine Empire that creating portraits of saints was actually banned for over a century at one point. In the modern world, “iconic” often refers to celebrities who transcend their eras to become enduring symbols in global mass culture. Certainly, one of the greatest of these is Marilyn Monroe, “America’s first goddess” and one of the most photographed women in American history.
