At the close of the 13th century, a committee was established in the Republic of Florence to plan the construction of the city’s famous cathedral. Included in the plans was a statue of a famous Old Testament character to be carved from a 12,000-pound marble slab. Two artists were commissioned to sculpt the statue and failed. Finally, in 1501, the artist Michelangelo set out to finish the project, and after 3 exhausting years, the statue was completed. Known as David, this masterpiece of Renaissance art is currently held at the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence.

The obverse of 2022 62.2 Gram Antique Silver David Coins features Queen Elizabeth II. This design is credited to Ian Rank-Broadley and features the Queen facing right and wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. The background has a rough texture to make it look as though the portrait was carved from marble. Inscriptions read Elizabeth II, Niue, Five Dollars, Ag .999, 2022.
On the reverse side of 2022 Antique Niue Silver David Coins is a closeup of David. He is shown facing the right side, just as you would see him in the actual statue in Florence. The roughly textured background gives the sense that Michelangelo is in the process of completing his masterpiece. The word David is inscribed along the side.
