Tour of European Cities and Landmarks on New Coins

The Treasury of the Island state of Niue have launched (11th July) two new coins which spend tribute to the “Old Continent” Europe’s most nicely-recognized and preferred travel destinations.

Continents Europe Silver Coin

The two coins have cleverly and artistically blended the most familiar landmarks of six of Europe’s greatest destinations which incorporate the Tower Bridge in London, St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Coliseum in Rome, St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Cologne and the Parthenon in Athens. The buildings also reflect different types of architecture and historical periods when the landmarks have been built. Behind all of the landmarks, a map of the European continent can be noticed.

The obverse includes attributes or symbols related with geography, travel and discovery –that of a globe, telescope and a map. A tiny cameo portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II is positioned to the middle left edge of these oblong or oval-shaped coins.
