  • The coin set issue is related to the 2012 phenomenon comprises a range of beliefs according to which cataclysmicor transformative events will occur on 21 December 2012. This date is regarded by some predictions as the final event of history, the ultimate destiny of humanity - commonly referred to as the "end of the world" or "end time". The 21st of December 2012 is the final date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae have been proposed as pertaining to this date, though none have been accepted by astronomers or other scientists.
  • The "Apocalypse" coin set issue represents an optimistic, New Age interpretation of this end-date which means that this date marks the start of time in which Earth and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation, and that 2012 marks a BEGINING of a NEW ERA (as opposition to the end of the human civilization).
  • The design of the Apocalypse coin set is based therefore on this optimistic vision and presents four Apocalypse horsemen surrounding the Saviour who keeps the divine order of the universe and controls the struggle between good and evil.
  • Design of the coin set is based on pictures from an illuminated series of manuscripts of St. John Apocalypse (last book of the New Testament - Book of Revelation of Jesus Christ to St. John the Evangelist), written in the 1st half of the 14th century, based on the German text, by Heinrich von Hesler (born in Thuringia, living at the turn of 13th and 14th centuries). The series of illuminated Hesler's Apocalypses was written to order of Luder from Brunswick (being Grand Master of Teutonic Knights between 1331-1335). In this day and age, only three copies from that series survived - the oldest one is kept in the Württembergische Landesbibliothek in Stuttgart (Germany), two others - in the library of the Nicolaus Copernicus University of Torun (Poland).


    Scenes from the Albrecht Durer famous series of 15 woodcuts "The four horsemen of the Apocalypse"; on each coin effigy of Elizabeth II, inscriptions: "Niue Island", "Elizabeth II", "1 Dollar","2012".

    On the external (corner) coins there are images of four horsemen of the Apocalypse:

    • the horseman on the white horse is referred to as Conquest (Victory), he carries a bow and wears a victor's crown;
    • the horseman on a black horse is understood as Famine, he carries a pair of weighing scales;
    • the horsemen on a pale horse is called Death;
    • the horseman on the red horse is often taken to represent War.

    On the background of each reverse - engraved images showing corresponding themes depicted on the glass stained window of the All Saints' Parish church, (Falmouth, Cornwall). On the central internal round coin there is a drawing of the governing Saviour - having power to control the power of evil and mitigate its negative influence on humanity. On each coin inscription: "Apocalypse" (in one of the following languages: English, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish/Latin), and the hallmark "Ag925".
