Minted in New Zealand for Niue but with the Czech reverse.
If I'm reading this correctly, the Czech Mint's page for these coins suggest it's the other way around, produced by the Czech Mint for Niue: "The obverse side of the coin bears the linden branch and attributes of the Niue Island that provides the Czech Mint with a foreign license to coin its own coins".https://ceskamincovna.cz/en/silver-...755-10380-d/
That's the English version of the page. Running the Czech version through Google Translate gives the same verbiage (which might have produced the English version in the first place). Mistranslation or misreading?
Edit add: Found this at https://exclusivecoins.blogspot.com...ins_29.html:
The Czech Republic wanted to issue a bullion coin with Queen Elizabeth II's effigy , with a few Czech motifs on the Obverse, to resemble the Sovereign Gold/Silver bullion coins for wider acceptability world-wide.
Niue Islands (which has no coining mint) and which usually requisitions the help of various mints world-wide to mint its commemorative/circulating coins, has come to the aid of the Czech Mint and for a first time helped create this coin for the Czech Republic, which has a mint (the #268;eskŠ Mincovna) but so far did not have a bullion program.
The New Zealand Mint has given a license to the Czech Mint to coin its own coins.
Side note: The New Zealand Mint is a private mint, not associated with The Royal Mint
