Very Rare, No longer Available (not in circulation)!
The Niue 2017 Guardian Angel $1 Silver Coin really caught my eye when I found it through my coin provider as it displayed a beautiful depection of a guardian angel watching over a child with doves. I had to have the coin and picked it up back around February 2017 but only just now got around to making a ring out of it. Sadly I can't seem to find the .999 Pure Silver Coin anywhere but will continue to look. All I could find is it is no longer in circulation but pretty sure if I find it, the silver coin dollar will probably be much higher than I originally paid (around $40 for the coin alone). With much care I have hand crafted this beautiful coin into a ring that I'm sure will have some deep meaning for many and although I show it displayed in an "Antiqued Patina" finish, I can also convert it to a pure silver finish, 24K Gold Plating or Rose Gold Plating as well - the choice is yours.
Here's a bit more information about the coin itself...
The 2017 Guardian Angel $1 Silver Coin is the first issue in a planned series of annual Guardian Angel-themed coins made of one troy ounce actual silver weight (ASW) of 99.9% pure (.999 fine) silver.
As part of its partnership with the Government of Niue, the inaugural issue of this coin was limited to a maximum mintage of 100,000 pieces. The 2017 Guardian Angel was struck at the New Zealand Mint, which has a long history of working with Niue.
THE 2017 GUARDIAN ANGEL .999 FINE SILVER COIN
Legal tender in Niue, the obverse features the famous fourth portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II facing right, as designed by Raphael “Ralph” Maklouf. Starting from the left side of the coin, the inscriptions ELIZABETH II, NIUE and the face value of ONE DOLLAR wrap around the rim clockwise. Beneath the truncation of Her Majesty’s bust is the year of issue, 2017.
The reverse feature the eponymous angel wrapping the bottom of her wings protectively around a boy. She appears to be comforting him as much as she is protecting him, and the child’s expression and body language reveal worry but also relief as he looks up at his guardian. A dove in mid-flight is seen to either side of the duo. The inscription GUARDIAN ANGEL curves along the top of the side, while the purity and weight are found along the bottom rim. A representation of the Sun, replete with a multitude of sharp rays not unlike those found on another numismatic expression of hope, Augustus Saint-Gaudens‘ classic $20 double eagle gold coin, rises from a billowy cloud behind the two figures.
Both obverse and reverse are manufactured with a Proof-like field.
The 2017 Guardian Angel silver coin has a reeded edge.
