Christmas is coming! The Pacific island of Niue presents a truly charming coin decorated with a genuine Swarovski crystal and dedicated to one of the most beloved holiday attributes – a Christmas tree. Struck from 1 oz .999 silver in the shape of a Christmas tree with selective gilding, this proof coin of 2013 will make a great gift for friends and relatives during the holiday season.
The coin traditionally bears the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II and the inscription of the Queen’s name on the obverse. The face value of the coin, its issuing country and year are indicated below. A winter city landscape with snowflakes and stars at the background gives this holiday coin a special charm.
The reverse features happy kids dressed in Christmas outfits against the background of sparkling stars and snowflakes of various shapes. The top of the tree is embellished with a Swarovski crystal. The custom of decorating Christmas trees came from England and France during the ancient times. Anything sparkling and glittering was put on the tree in order to enrich and highlight its beauty. The worldwide mintage of the 2013 Christmas coin is limited to 5 999 pieces. The coin comes in a pretty presentation case in the shape of a bauble to surprise the recipient and get them into the holiday spirit.
