Antique and vintage maps are their own beautiful form of art. Imagine taking that type of visual and placing it on a brilliant uncirculated coin. It’s not a visual you have to keep only in your imagination, because it’s been brought to life in the form of the 2022 Tokelau Terra 1 oz Silver Coin.
The obverse of this gorgeous coin includes a map of the western Pacific region, including Oceania, Australia and part of Asia. The landmasses are depicted with a paisley pattern that lends an artistic and vintage feel to the image. The sea and oceans are shown with a grid-like pattern. An inset on the right of the coin includes the required portrait of Elizabeth II. This effigy was created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 and has been used since then in many coin designs across the globe. Around the image of the map, a clever border designed to look like a compass provides room for inscriptions that read 5 DOLLARS, TERRA 2022, ELIZABETH II, and TOKELAU.
On the reverse, you’ll find the other side of the globe. It depicts the Atlantic ocean and continents of North and South America, Africa, and Europe with the same paisley and grid-like patterns as the reverse. A lovely stylized compass rose is included and sits in the middle of the ocean. The inscriptions on this side are also housed on a compass-style border and read 1 OZ FINE SILVER 9999, TERRA 2022, and SERVA ME, SERVABO TE. The Latin phrase means SAVE ME AND I WILL SAVE YOU. It’s a reminder that every person is responsible for working to protect the Earth that provides them a home and resources.
Coin is shipped in a protective plastic flip. The clear flip lets you show the coin without exposing it to elements or wear and tear and also provides an excellent way to store your coin.
The history of cartography is centuries old. The basic version of the world map we use today dates back to around the 1500s, though obviously things have been finetuned and updated over those centuries. However, by the late 1500s, most educated cartographers understood that there were continents and seas to be found over the horizon and not dragons.
