As a matter of interest, does anyone actually know exactly where NIue is without checking?

It's out in the Pacific somewhere.

It’s a nice coin , but , Its Niue and 50k mintage 
if that’s royal mint / Perth mint / American mint / Canadian mint , etc 
Then 50 k will be sold out even if they are bad qualities 

New Zealand mint.

Not a fan of it either. Also very puzzled about what the thinking is behind this choice of topic and design for a bullion coin series. Just find it too.... odd. Is it simply a case of the CEO saying lions are in, buyers like lions, find me a lion, a symbolic one, and roaring. If not, then what?

A NZmint commission by a US bullion dealer.

I was going to bulk up on them as I suspected that there may have been an error in the design. There is Hebrew letters on the coin את and an inscription on the coin “And the Truth Shall Set You Free”. The Alef Tav doesn’t make sense to a Hebrew speaker, in Hebrew this is the female form of “you”. Though if you added a mem to make the word to make אמת, then it would make sense (the word Emet means truth in Hebrew).

When I searched for symbolism of alef tav there came up with a reference to as the coin suggested. The reference was from a Christian website which within the contents makes sense.

So I may still pick up a few tubes when spot drops below $16.50 or lower but not going to rush out and buy.
