The coins of Niue have become collectors items around the world, and they're helping to put cash into the Niuean economy, as well as creating global awareness about a tiny island in the Pacific.

The most recent deal that Niue signed with the New Zealand mint is estimated to be worth around six million dollars over ten years.

The latest release features a range of Disney characters on one side of the coins, and Queen Elizabeth's head on the other.
