Rivendell was an enchanted town of the immortal Elves in the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, a pivotal place in Middle Earth that played host to some of the most famous Elven heroes and artifacts. It was ruled by Lord Elrond, who provided crucial support and guidance to the Fellowship of the Ring both in Tolkien’s books and in the landmark film adaptations ofLord of the Ringsby Peter Jackson. Those films brought Rivendell to vivid life in an achievement celebrated by the New Zealand Mint’s 2022 Niue Lord of the Rings Rivendell 3 oz Silver Coin.
The 2022 Niue Lord of the Rings Rivendell Silver Coin is an extraordinary pure silver collectible whose antiqued finish provides a perfect setting for its detailed high-relief engraving. Provident Metals fully insures your shipment against even the most remote possibility of loss or damage, and it comes nestled in velvet inside a secure, themed display case. A Certificate of Authenticity verifies each coin’s unique number in the mintage on the back of the case.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy dominates the coin’s obverse side to verify its standing as legal tender of Niue. It’s accompanied by inscriptions of the royal name, face value, and year and country of issue.
The coin’s reverse side features Rivendell as it appears in Peter Jackson’s definitive film adaptations ofThe Lord of the Rings.At the rim appear the copyright and trademark of New Line Productions, as well as confirmation of weight and silver content.
The iconic location of Rivendell was originally named Imladris in J.R.R. Tolkien’s created Elven language of Sindarin, meaning “valley” or “ravine.” Tolkien based it on a real place: the Lauterbrunnental valley in Switzerland where he hiked in 1911. In the famous film adaptations of Lord of the RingsandThe Hobbit,a similar landscape in New Zealand’s Kaitoke Regional Park provided the striking natural backdrop for the Elven refuge, with its crystal clear waters and green canopy providing an enchanted sense of peace and the craggy landscape still evoking the fictional site’s Sindarin name.
