    The precious coin minted by Niue in 2011 is a part of the picturesque series dedicated to the main achievements of humankind. The represented one depicts the development of writing, which is the only way to bring all the cultural and scientific achievements to the next generations. The magic and importance of writing systems invented by mankind are impersonalized in the design of this silver dollar. Its obverse traditionally bears the relief effigy of the Queen’s profile in the small round frame right in the center of the surface. The little images around it are the ones related to different stages of the writing history. There are world-famous Egyptian hieroglyphs, the ancient Greek authors, the printing tools and other features depicted. The reverse side of the coin is decorated with images of writing and printing tools too; there are pen in the ink-stand and Gothic letters for medieval book-printing craft. The design shows the colored image of the old hand-printing book’s page in the center while the rest of the background is patterned with monochrome letters.


    A new coin, a capsule, a CoA, a case.
