In this category, you will find Silver coins from Niue. Niue gets its name from the Niuean word meaning "behold the coconut." This tiny island nation in the South Pacific first began issuing coins in 1966. These have been mostly bullion and non-circulating base metal commemorative issues. Coins from Niue set themselves apart from other countries in several ways. Many coins feature colorization, gilding or antiqued finishes. Others are produced in unique shapes, include inserts and/or highlighted through the use of crystals.
