The beadlike objects on the outer ring represent the fourteen villages of Niue. At the bottom of the seal is ‘ATUA NIUE TUKULAGI’ which translates to ‘God, Niue eternally’. At the top of the coin is ‘FIVE DOLLARS’ and at the bottom is ‘2022’. To the right in a much smaller text is ‘Ag 999’. This whole side has an antique finish.
On the reverse side of the coin are the layers of King Tut’s coffin. There were three layers before the 24lb gold mask which has become synonymous with King Tut.
