The swan has a deep heritage as a symbol of enchantment and love that goes back into ancient mythology, manifested by tales of “swan maidens” from many different places and times across Europe and elsewhere. These tales, perhaps inspired in their turn by the observed fact that swans mated for life, were sometimes sweetly tragic but could also celebrate triumphant love, such as the story of Wayland the Smith and his shape-shifting beloved Swanhilde (a magical maiden for whom the Smith eventually abandoned his home). This kind of romance is celebrated by the New Zealand Mint with the 2023 Colorized Niue Swan Love is Precious 1 oz Silver Coin.
The 2023 Colorized Niue Silver Swan Love is Precious Coin shows a dedication to romance in every part of its design, coming nestled in blue velvet inside a heart-shaped silvery case. It arrives inside box packaging with a Certificate of Authenticity that also includes a romantic quote from William Shakespeare (“Thee will I love, and with thee lead my life”).
The obverse side of this coin features an effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II to confirm the coin as legal tender. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH,” “NIUE,” “TWO DOLLARS,” and “2023.”
The coin’s reverse side features a pair of colorized swans on the water of a pond, surrounded by multi-colored flowers and accompanied by a cubic zirconia insert. This design is surrounded by an intricate decorative rim with the inscription “LOVE IS PRECIOUS” below; a smaller inscription above verifies the coin’s silver contents.
This stunning pure silver collectible is a tribute by the New Zealand Mint to romance and enduring love. Inspired by the fact that swans mate for life and showing the birds accompanied by floral imagery and a decorative gem, this stunning pure silver coin brings together a profusion of romantic imagery and design in a package that makes it a perfect gift for anniversaries, engagements, weddings and other romantic occasions.
