Coin Story

The Wheel of Fortune, or Rota Fortunae, is a concept in medieval and ancient philosophy referring to the capricious nature of Fate. The wheel belongs to the goddess Fortuna, who spins it at random, changing the positions of those on the wheel - some suffer great misfortune, others gain windfalls. Fortune appears on all paintings as a woman, sometimes blindfolded, "puppeteering" a wheel.

Reverse Design

The coin has the shape of an ancient cart wheel. In the centre a replica of a gold Roman coin Aureus with Fortuna (24 CT Gold Printing), with the inscriptions: "AUGUST" and "FORTUNA". Around the coin inscriptions: "WHEEL OF FORTUNE" (In English and Russian).

Obverse Design

The obverse features the effigy of the Queen Elizabeth II, in the centre. Around the coin inscriptions: "ELIZABETH II", "NIUE", "ONE DOLLAR", "11,80G" (weight of the coin), "2014"and the hallmark "AG999,9".
