Coins-World | Doug S.

Hi All,I bought this thing a few years ago. I don't normally buy coins that aren't US collectible. But this one jumped out at me. Only a Mintage of 500.2 OZ. silver made by the Polish Mint. Opinions?? Nuie Islands which I understand is a Commonwealth country affiliated with Great Britain.RegardsDougPS couldn't get the photo to not appear sideways.

I love it. I remember when it came out. I didn't buy one but I have similar coins. I feel it is just as much a coin as our SAE. It's backed by a country and that is the definition. That being said, I couldn't care less. If it catches your eye it's good to go. Doesn't mater what one calls it. Good job. Thanks.

Thanks for the comments. I think it was in the Numismatist that noted it was being issued if I recall correctly. It caught my eye as soon as I saw and ordered it right away. Thanks again. Regards Doug

OK, they may not be what a purist considers a true coin, I mean, I'm not a purist and don't really consider then a "true coin", but I do have a couple of this type. Hey sometimes a coin, medal, or other items just "speaks to you" and when it does, well you gotta have it. I like it and would collect something like this myself. Thanks for the picture of the coin and the blog, I liked it. Later!

I think its lovely, sometimes you have to buy what you love regardless of how other may perceive it, that's what collecting is all about. The super high relief make sit look like a handcrafted medal. Great pickup!

I probably have a contrarian position but these Niue coins are the absolute epitome of the modern abuse of legal tender status. We have a small island nation in the Pacific using proxy mints to create everything from superhero, to norse gods, to you name it. They are attractive but they are not truly coins IMHO. Full Disclosure, I have a Niue 2 ounce silver Odin coin which I love but I still think of it as a medal not a coin.

Oh I agree...I don't see them as currency either. But had to have this one....Ok...medal it is. Regards Doug

That is an awesome piece. I was looking at a coin with a mintage of 500 recently. You see a lot of low mintage pieces coming out these days. The one you have is really nice. You have a great coin. Buying what you like is the key, and I think the one you have a lot of people would like.
