The popular Ships of War series continues with the HMS Victory! Floating out of Chatham in 1765, this ship’s place in history was secured after she saw duty as Vice Admiral Nelson’s flagship during the Battle of Trafalgar. After an incredible 157 years, Victory was placed into dry dock in 1922. To this day, the oldest commissioned warship in the world stands as a museum. And now, she’s honored in rich color on the reverse of this 2021 Brilliant Uncirculated coin!
Measuring just over 1 1/2" in diameter, each dramatic coin in the series is struck in 1 oz. of 33.3% silver. Issued as $1 legal tender for Niue, the coins in this series are strictly limited in mintage to just 999 pieces – and are available exclusively through Littleton. Each reverse is colorized with a piece of licensed artwork. The common obverse depicts Queen Elizabeth II. You can also get the earlier coins in the series, honoring the USS Missouri and the USS New Jersey.
