The New Zealand Mint teamed up with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to issue an extraordinary series of collectible coins commemorating one of the best-known places in Middle-Earth: the Shire, the idyllic rural home of the delightful Hobbits who provided the heroes of Tolkien’s most famous works. The 2022 Antique Niue Silver The Shire 3 oz Silver Coin celebrates the legacy of the Shire as it was brought to life in the blockbuster film adaptations of The HobbitandThe Lord of the Rings.
The 2022 Antique Niue The Shire Coin offers beautifully sculpted artwork of the Shire with an antique finish, shipped in a compact themed box with the coin encased in black velvet. Provident Metals fully insures each shipment, which comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that identifies your coin’s unique number in this exclusive limited mintage.
The coin’s obverse side features the profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, along with the inscriptions “Queen Elizabeth II,” “Niue,” “Ten Dollars,” and “2022.”
The countryside of the Shire features on the coin’s reverse side. It’s joined by the copyright and trademark of New Line Productions and the inscription “3 oz 999 Fine Silver” verifying its content.
The New Zealand Mint has a long track record of producing iconic collectibles to commemorate some of the most iconic franchises, characters, and locations in the modern media landscape. The Shire is a perfect fit with that tradition as a truly iconic location beloved by fans first of J.R.R. Tolkien’s books, and later by enthusiasts of the major series of films by Peter Jackson that adapted those books for the big screen in the most definitive cinematic versions ever produced. The artwork and design of this coin represent the very best of these kinds of collectibles, prized by collectors and investors and an excellent gift for special occasions.
