2020 Niue $5 2oz Silver Coin - THE WITCHER - Sword of Destiny



2020 Niue $5  2oz Silver Coin - The Witcher SWORD OF DESTINY 

The Witcher returns...Discover new adventures of Geralt of Rivia, struck in the purest silver! There will be 8 coins in total in the series - 1 coin struck every year, each dedicated to a book from the saga about the Witcher.

It is the second coin in "The Witcher" - the bookseries limited edition. The series was opened in 2019 by "The Last Wish" coin, its name referring to the novels by Andrzej Sapkowski by the same title.

The Sword of Destiny coin is struck in 62.2 grams of pure silver. The reverse, 45 mm in diameter, shows two scenes that appear at the beginning and end of the story.

The main scene on the reverse, often described by experts and fans as one of the most important in the saga of The Witcher, presents three characters. The Queen of Brokilon, Eithne, is holding the goblet and hands it to Ciri, one of the main figures in the Witcher saga. Next to her is Dryad Braenn.

The goblet is filled with the Brokilone Water, containing special powers. Drinking water from the goblet is to determine the fate of Ciri and the others - she may choose to stay in Brokilon or follow her destiny.

In the background we see Geralt The Witcher, who has killed skolopendromorf- a forest creature attacking the local residents.

Every detail of the reverse is perfectly visible thanks to the high relief, and the whole looks very vividly, just like the world presented in the collection of Sapkowski's novels.

The accessories also attract attention. The Witcher's sword was plated with pure gold. The most important element of the decoration, the goblet, was made in a very special, hand-polished glass, multilayered 3D glass (slight differences in color compared to visualisations may occur).

The obverse is decorated with ornaments and symbols related to the Brokilon Forest and Geralt's attributes: swords and a wolf symbol. The elegant coin box also bears the symbol of the Witcher, i.e. the wolf. Limited mintage of 2000 pieces!
