Nieu island has some really strange coinage, even stranger is there's only around 2000 inhabitants over there and all of their "dollar" coins are made of sterling silver (Ag 925), and despite being legal tender, they are worth 50x the minted value... wtf?

also just found this on ebay... if the coinage is for Nieu Island, where (supposedly) people only speak the native language and English, why is the entire booklet printed in Russian???

I guess it brings up the question why are these coins even minted?!

May be a stretch, given their suggested age, but they remind me of the kind of tat you get in souvenier stores?

I don't think it was made in Poland. I found it on website of Polish Mint but there is so many weird stuff - Darth Vader, King Lion coins. Why do you think it's from Poland.

I think this coin is occasianaly coin which worth describes silver value. Why Crimea? no reason - same as Lord Vader coin :).

Same coins from Niue Island
