As legal tender of Niue Island, the Scottsdale CoinBar has nominal face value of $2 NZD and is a perfect fusion of world-class minting, contemporary design, and new technology. All new Mint Guard technology provides a special latent imagery stamped into each bar – embedded security that can be validated without the use of a magnifying glass or any other decoding device. The bidirectional latent image text can be seen by viewing the bar in profile; both 2013 and VALID appear depending upon the viewing angle. This particular mintage will be limited to 350,000. The obverse features the timeless Maklouf effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse is struck with the iconic Scottsdale Lion backed by a radiating sun. 1 Troy Ounce of .999 Fine Silver. Sealed in plastic. Bullion Grade, Proof Versions may be released in the future at a higher premium.
