Niue, a sovereign state in free association with New Zealand, uses two official legal tender currencies. While they use the New Zealand dollar, the government also issues legal tender coins using the Niue dollar for collector's purposes.
Niue first began issuing coins in 1966. These have been mostly bullion and non-circulating base metal commemorative issues. They are acceptable as legal tender within Niue, though unlikely to be found anywhere on the island.
In 2009, Niue began issuing its first standardized coin set in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50 cent and 1 Dollar; they are thicker than New Zealand coins as well as having a different metallic composition. They are also of the same exact size and composition as the Pitcairn Islands special coin set.
All of the standard set coins bear images relevant to the country, (except for a few with Pokemon on them) surrounded by a distinct border.
All coins of Niue depict on the obverse the national crest or an official effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
In 2011 the New Zealand Mint produced a limited edition set of Niue Dollar legal tender coins commemorating the Star Wars motion picture series, apparently authorised by Lucasfilm Ltd., and depicting many principal characters from the series rendered in colour.
