A series as old as AgAuNEWS is, Tokelau Sealife continues with a ninth silver release, and a third gold one. Why the difference? In 2020, the series moved away from its originator, Treasures of Oz, and on to APMEX, and with it came a change in design, and the addition of the gold variant, also an ounce in weight. The previous satin finish gave way to an increasingly complex geometric pattern in the background field, along with a prettier obverse design.
The Lionfish adorns the 2022 entrant in a series that will end in 2025, when the twelfth coin debuts. This series has always shown a fine grasp of anatomy, with each subject very well realised, and despite the prominent background, this one seems no different to that. Indeed, the whole thing seems quite fresh and modern in comparison to the early coins, and should build into a neat set.
The 38.6 mm diameter 0.999 silver coin has a nice taut mintage of 10,000 pieces, while the 34 mm diameter 0.9999 gold variant, caps out at a positively microscopic 100 pieces. Botha re APMEXclusives, but you should be able to pick them up elsewhere. We have a Bullion Coin Profile of the series up, so be sure to check out that for details on the other issues, if you’re interested. Available now.
