An Innovative Approach to Coinage

Breaking away from traditional coin shapes, this unique piece boasts a nonstandard rectangular form. What sets it apart is its striking black proof finish, a novel approach in coin manufacturing, offering a fresh perspective in your collection.

A Portal to Another World

Inspired by the enthralling work of Jorge Luis Borges, “The Book of Imaginary Beings” (1957), this coin brings to life the mysterious Mirror People. These human-like entities, said to exist in a parallel dimension, were first accessed by ancient Chinese magicians using mirrors. The coin’s reverse intricately depicts a Mirror Person endeavouring to cross into our world, presenting the idea that each coin is a gateway between realms.

Distinctive Cultural Heritage

On the obverse, the coin proudly displays the stylised coat of arms of Niue. The island’s traditional fighting clubs, katoua, are elegantly portrayed, symbolising strength and valour. This blend of Niuean heritage with Asian mythology creates a remarkable cultural fusion, making the coin not just a collectible but a piece of art that bridges worlds and traditions.
