The magical boarding school at the heart of the magical setting of the Harry Potter novels and movies, the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry had a heart of its own. Undeniably, that heart is the Great Hall, the main gathering area in Hogwarts Castle where students come together for meals, to hear announcements, and receive their letters through the magical Owl Post. Many important events in Harry’s saga happened in the Great Hall, including the encounter with the Sorting Hat that led him to House Gryffindor, and the final defeat of the evil Lord Voldemort. This iconic location is paid tribute by the New Zealand Mint with the 2022 3 oz Proof Niue Silver Hogwarts The Great Hall Coin.

Some of the most enchanting scenes in the Harry Potter films featured the Great Hall at Hogwarts. Teeming with students and faculty, it was the setting of the End-of-Term Feasts that featured the awarding of the House Cup each year, and it was the scene of multiple distinctive events like the Start-of-Term Feast, the Sorting of new students, various Wizarding examinations, Christmas and Halloween Feasts, Yule Balls, and Apparition Lessons. The heart and soul of the entire school, the Great Hall is simply the most iconic setting in the series.
The 2022 Proof Niue Silver Hogwarts The Great Hall Coin celebrates this setting with high-relief engraved artwork offset by a gorgeous antiqued finish. It ships in a colorful presentation case with a design inspired by the Daily Prophet newspaper from the films, and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. The team at JM Bullion recommends early ordering due to the limited supply in this mintage.
The coin’s obverse side features the famous Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, confirming it as legal tender. This is surrounded by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TEN DOLLARS,” and “2022.”
Its reverse side features a high-relief engraving of the Great Hall. It sits empty, awaiting the throngs of students that are sure to come, with the throne-like chairs of the faculty at its head.
