Maybe it was under the Christmas tree. Maybe it was a birthday present. Or maybe it was the result of many tireless months of saving money in your piggy bank. Every child has their own unique story of how they received their first Tonka truck. What they share is the common experience of being transported into another world by these magnificent toys. They were made of metal. They were built to last. They felt like the real thing. Whether you had the dump truck, the crane & clam, or the steam shovel, these impressive toys created indelible memories that many adults still cherish today.
The obverse of 2022 Niue Silver Tonka 75th Anniversary Coins features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. To the right of the portrait are two rows of tire tracks from a Tonka truck. There are inscriptions on the obverse as well that read Elizabeth II, Niue, 2022, 2 Dollars, 1 oz .999 Fine Silver.
