Niue first began issuing coins in 1966. These have been mostly bullion and non-circulating base metal commemorative issues. They are acceptable as legal tender within Niue, though unlikely to be found anywhere on the island.
In 2009, Niue began issuing its first standardised coin set in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50 cents and 1 Dollar; they are thicker than New Zealand coins as well as having a different metallic composition. They are also of the same exact size and composition as the Pitcairn Islands special coin set.
All of the standard set coins bear images relevant to the country, surrounded by a distinct border.
All coins of Niue depict on the obverse the national crest or an official effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
In 2011 the New Zealand Mint produced a limited edition set of New Zealand Dollar legal tender coins commemorating the Star Wars motion picture series, authorised by Lucasfilm Ltd., and depicting many principal characters from the series rendered in colour.
