The traditional obverse of the Niue coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II framed by the following inscriptions: the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its issuing country and year.
With its vibrant colors reflected in high-end digital printing, the coin depicts The Card Players painting by Paul Cezanne. Created between 1890 and 1895, this quintet of oil paintings is considered a cornerstone of Cézanne's "final period," when he created some of his most acclaimed works. In 2011, Qatar's royal family paid Greek shipping magnate George Embiricos more than $250 million for the honor of owning it, setting a new record for the highest price ever paid for a work of art.
