Valentine’s Day Coins 4


I’ve been trying to think of a US coin released specifically for Valentine’s Day, but haven’t had any luck. I can see coins used in heart necklaces and other jewelry, but not just the coin itself. If you think of one, please let me know. Meanwhile, I have found some foreign coins for Valentine’s Day.

Niue

Niue (pronounced neway) is a small coral island near Fiji, Samoa and the Cook Islands and about 1,500 miles northeast of New Zealand. Once a territory of New Zealand, Niue became self-governing in free association with New Zealand in 1974. At around 100 square miles, Niue is one of the smallest countries, but one of the largest coral islands. With their association with New Zealand, Niue uses the New Zealand Dollar as their monetary unit.

Here are some of the Valentine’s coins from this island. They are all .9999 oz. Silver Coins.

Tuvalu

Another Island Nation in the South Pacific, Tuvalu is the fourth smallest independent nation. Tuvalu coins are manufactured at the Perth Mint in Western Australia. They are 50 cent coins minted in .9999 oz silver. Here are a couple of the “Forever Love” coins.

Cook Islands

The Cook Islands had a couple of heart shaped coins in 2014 and 2017. As well as being being Silver Coins, they both contain a piece of jewelry making it 3D coins. Neat, huh?

So Forget the Chocolates and Flowers

Give your lover the gift that can last longer and possibly increase in value over time. They’re pretty coins too.

The South Pacific must be the center of romance.

    It is the very firs time I hear about Valentine’s coins. I’m not into coins and never been but it really looks like an unique and unforgettable gift. Do you know if those coins increase their value in time? Can they be customized – like have a coin engraved with the name of your loves one?

      I never really thought of Valentine’s coins till recently. Being that they are all silver coins, they will probably increase as the price of silver rises. Not sure how many were made. That may be a factor too.

    First of all, thank you for this article because I’ve never heard of Valentine’s coins before and its another gift to give my significant other because flowers and chocolates have always been used since time in memorial. They look really memorable and a bit expensive but I think its the thought that counts when I give this to my person. For sure she’s going to love it and might even request a custom coin. Might you know if they allow custom designs by people like me?

      I haven’t seen anywhere that does custom designs on coins, but I’m sure you can google it. This post is a rarity to me because I talk mostly about US coins, but I haven’t see a Valentine’s coin minted from the US yet.
