New Coronation Coin Series for the Kingdom of Tonga

The Governor of the National Reserve Bank of Tonga, Dr Sione Ngongo Kioa, today announced that Her Royal Highness Princess Angelika Latufuipeka Tuku'aho will officially launch the production of Tonga’s new circulating coins at a “Coining Ceremony” to be held at the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra on 4 March 2015.

Princess Angelika will officially strike each of the five new coin denominations so that full production may begin thereafter.

“The Bank is grateful to Her Royal Highness, who is also High Commissioner of Tonga in Australia, for agreeing to do this,” Governor Kioa said.

The new coins will be launched by His Majesty King Tupou VI, which is tentatively scheduled for 29 June 2015.
