This is the second coin of an exclusive Evolution of Earth series and features nummulites, a species of relatively large, lens-shaped foraminifers (that were abundant during the Paleogene and Neogene periods (65.5 million to 2.6 million years ago). Struck from 2 oz silver 999 with 3,7 mm high relief, the coin is fully plated with ruthenium and selectively plated with 24K gold. It come housed in a stylized presentation case with a CoA inside. The worldwide mintage is quite low – only 666 pieces.
The traditional obverse of a Niue coin contains a relief effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II surrounded by the following inscriptions: the Queen's name, the face value of the coin, its issuing country and year.
Superior craftsmanship combined with ruthenium and gold plating result in quite realistic fossil-like piece. Nummulites are beautiful and very distinctive fossils that are relatively easy to recognize in the field – they look like little coins set into the rocks. Because nummulites have calcium carbonate skeletons, they are generally found in limestone rocks.
