Eye of Providence
The Eye of Providence (or the all-seeing eye of God) is a symbol showing an eye often surrounded by rays of light or a glory and usually enclosed by a triangle. It represents the eye of God watching over mankind (or divine providence). In the modern era, a notable depiction of the eye is the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, which appears on the United States one-dollar bill. The association of an eye with the concept of Divine Providence did not emerge until well into the Christian Era. In Renaissance European iconography the eye surrounded by a triangle was an explicit image of the Christian Trinity. Seventeenth-century depictions of the Eye of Providence sometimes show it surrounded by clouds or sunbursts.
The reverse of the coin presents an exquisite ornamental design, that looks like many leaves placed togather to enhance the center of the coin, where the magnificent Amber insert is placed. The amber is accurately intaglioed to form the famous Eye of Providence, a pyramid with an eye in the middle. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “NIUE ISLAND” – the issue country, “2017” – the year of issue, “1 DOLLAR” – the face value and “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen.
