Svetovid
Svetovid, Svantovit or Sventovit is a Slavic deity of war, fertility and abundance primarily venerated on the island of Rügen into the 12th century. He is often considered a local Rugian variant of the pan-Slavic god Perun. Sometimes referred to as Beli (or Byali) Vid (Beli = white, bright, shining), Svetovid is associated with war and divination and depicted as a four-headed god with two heads looking forward and two back. A statue portraying the god shows him with four heads, each one looking in a separate direction, a symbolical representation of the four directions of the compass, and also perhaps the four seasons of the year. Each face had a specific colour. The northern face of this totem was white (hence White Ruthenia / Belarus and the White Sea), the western, red (hence Red Ruthenia), the southern, black (hence the Black Sea) and the eastern, green (hence Zeleny klyn).

 
Design

The reverse of the coin depicts the incredible and detailed high relief image of Svetovid, the god of war. Above the reverse, the inscription: “SVETOVID” - the name of the coin. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded by vegetation, with a bear, a wolf and an eagle in the background. At the bottom of the reverse, the inscriptions: “2 DOLLARS” - the nominal value, “ELIZABETH II” - the Queen's name, “NIUE” - the issuing country and “2019” - the year of issue.
