This new silver coin of Niue constitutes a twofold methaphorical representation of the Sun. In Ancient Egypt, the scarab beetle was seen as the epitome of divinity. As a symbol of rebirth, it was believed to illustrate the Sun’s heavenly path across the sky and its daily self-renewal. Enriched with a natural amber piece embedded into a 17,50 g silver 999 piece, the coin has got the worldwide mintage of only 500 pieces worldwide.

The obverse of the Niue coin traditionally bears the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II surrounded by the following inscriptions: the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its metal fineness, issuing country and year.

The reverse features a detailed image of a scarab and a genuine amber insert. Funerary scarab amulets were often placed in pharaoh tombs. Produced from precious metals and gemstones, these beautifully crafted sacred beetles were popular talismans, sometimes used as currency. Just like the Scarabeus, amber – called the “tears of the Sun” or the “burning stone” – was the symbol of the Sun, immortality and rebirth. Presented as a gift, it is a symbol of true friendship. The souvenir coin is housed in an elegant case, accompanied by a specially designed cover resembling a hand-painted papyrus.
