The Year of the Monkey arrives in 2016, and what better way to celebrate its arrival than with this coin?
Monkeys are credited for being smart, clever and inquisitive learners who also like to tease. Although they are practical jokers, monkeys are caring parents that will dedicate their time to their infants, families and social groups.
This particular coin is a masterpiece of minting. What better way to symbolize the importance of our mothers in our lives than by gilding her image? With a mirrored field in the background of the coin’s reverse image, the gold mother stands out as she tends to her infant. The warm hues of the gold soften her image, almost creating a halo of warmth and love.
The obverse side of this coin reveals a relief image of the reigning monarch in Tokelau, Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as well as the Tokelau badge – a taluma, or tackle box for fishing — with its motto of “Tokelau Mo Te Atua” printed underneath. This coin is legal tender in the Pacific Island of Tokelau.
