The Mint of Poland, in association with the South Pacific island nation of Niue, proudly presents this awesome, highly detailed new release. This extravagant coin captures a remarkably unique underwater design with an incredibly detailed antiqued finish.
The reverse displays a truly remarkable underwater scene, featuring a genuine petrified ammonite. The ammonite is completely surrounded by the sprawling tentacles of an octopus. Embedded in the head of the octopus is an actual amber inset. The application of the antique finish is absolutely amazing! A single inscription, “AMMONITE” is displayed at the top rim.
The obverse displays a beautifully antiqued finish of the Ian Rank-Broadly profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II within a centre inset. Encircling outside the inset are the inscriptions, “ELIZABETH II . NIUE ISLAND . 5 DOLLARS . 2019 and the AG 999 purity. The rimless design is highlighted by a fine, beaded band encircling the inscriptions.
Comes presented in a clear display box with the surrounding graphic doubling as a certificate of authenticity.
