If you missed the previous year’s minting of the Europa coin from Tokelau, 2022 gives you another chance to add this silver coin to your collection. You may already know that Greek mythology-based coins tend to be very popular among collectors around the world. 

Last year’s Europa silver coin has come and gone. But it’s not too late to get your 2022 1 oz Tokelau goddess Europa silver coin to add to (or start!) your own mythological-themed coin collection…

A closer look at the 2022 1 oz Tokelau Goddess Europa silver coin

On the coin’s reverse, you’ll see a not-unhappy Europa astride the white bull, peeking over her shoulder, toward the sunset on the horizon. She’s probably wondering if her brothers are coming to rescue her. Zeus as the white bull has his eyes set firmly forward, a single hoof upraised as if contemplating a charge. Oddly he’s standing on what’s clearly the ocean, though it’s a calm day and there are no waves to speak of. Apparently the king of the Greek gods had an agreement with his brother Poseidon that allowed him to walk rather than swim? The reverse includes the legend GODDESS EUROPA (which she isn’t yet, though she will be a little later in the story!), the weight and purity of silver, 0.9999 fine.

The obverse features Ian Rank-Broadley’s 1998 portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the same one used from 1998-2015, when it was replaced with Jamie Clark’s “fifth portrait” showing a more mature Queen.

Last year’s run of Goddess Europa silver coins didn’t last long, so be sure to get yours while we have them!

The story of Europa and the bull

This is one of Zeus’s not-so-nice abduction tales… See, Europa was an incredibly beautiful woman who lived on a farm. Zeus fell in love with her and decided to get close to her by pretending to be a pure white bull, concealed in her father’s cattle herd. When Europa was feeding the cows, she noticed the stranger and became fascinated by it. She approached the bull, petted its muzzle, scratched behind its ears… The bull acted so tame Europa plucked up her courage and climbed up on its back. Immediately, Zeus ran away with his crush, jumping into the Mediterranean and swimming all the way to the island of Crete, Europa no doubt screaming her head off the whole time. Once they reached dry land, Zeus transformed back into a human shape and revealed his identity. He then made Europa the first Queen of Crete. 

To remind the world of this story of (kidnapping? lust?) his exploits, he created the constellation Taurus, the White Bull, in the nighttime sky. 

According to all accounts, Europa was happy to be the queen of Crete but she never milked a cow again.

Who mints Tokelau’s coinage?

This nation simply doesn’t have the infrastructure to produce its own coinage. Instead, Tokelau grants legal authority to the UK’s Pobjoy Mint or Bulgaria’s Bulmint to manufacture its wide range of collectible coins. Tokelau silver coin series include the Creatures of Myth and Legend, the Zodiac, Messages of Love, Lady of Fortune, World's Most Romantic Cities and most famously its Chinese Lunar new year coins which launched in 2012.

About Bulmint

Bulmint was incorporated in 2005 in Branipole, Bulgaria as a daughter company of the largest lead and zinc producer in South-Eastern Europe, KCM 2000. (Interestingly, KCM 2000 is also the largest company in the nation of Bulgaria!)

In 2009 Bulmint became an independent company focused on refining, processing and minting precious metals. They are ISO 9001 certified. Currently Bulmint subcontracts for the Austrian Mint, Italpreziosi, Argor-Heraeus, the Mint of Poland, the Croatian Monetary Institute and the Bulgarian Mint as well as Tokelau. They’re a major supplier of coin and medal casting molds for a number of respected mints throughout Europe. Bulmint produces minted gold bullion bars under its own name which are sold worldwide.

About Tokelau

The nation of Tokelau (known before 1976 as the Union Islands) is a territory of New Zealand in the southern Pacific Ocean. It’s near American Samoa (in fact, if you look at the globe image here, American Samoa would be covered up by the right-hand side of the red circle). The nation consists of three coral atolls, Atafu, Nukunonu and Fakaofo – for a total landmass of 4 square miles. The capital of the nation alternates yearly, with each of the three atolls taking a turn. 

Here are a few more notable things about the island nation of Tokelau:

  • Its population of 1,500 citizens is the fourth-smallest of any sovereign nation in the world
  • The vast majority (94%) of citizens speak Tokelauan as their first language
  • The nation has the smallest economy of any sovereign nation
  • Tokelau is a world leader in renewable energy, the first 100% solar-powered nation in the world (Iceland is the only other 100%-renewably-powered nation)
  • Tokelau increased its GDP by more than 10% when it began sales of its top-level Internet domain name, .tk

Why do you ship my order to my billing address?
This is a security measure to combat credit card fraud. By shipping to the billing address on file with your credit card company, we prevent scammers with stolen card numbers from fraudulent activity.

How long before you ship my order?
Once your payment has cleared, we will begin processing, packaging, and shipping your order. How long this takes varies based on your payment method, the size of your order, and your specific products. Once your order has shipped, you will receive an email confirmation, with a link to find your shipment tracking information on your account page.


 

Do you ship internationally?
No, not at this time. 


 

How do you prepare packages for shipment?
All your purchased products are packaged under video surveillance to ensure quality control and packages are carefully and discreetly wrapped in generic corrugated boxes. 


 

How do you ship my order?
We ship via Registered/Insured U.S. Postal Service and UPS in discreet, secure packaging. Each package is fully insured and may require a signature upon delivery. Packages take 1-10 business days for delivery. We’ll send your tracking number by email when your order ships. 


 

Is my order insured while in transit?
Yes, BullionMax fully insures all of its shipments. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, it will be covered by our insurance policy.
However, we will not accept responsibility if you have left instructions with any carriers or delivery services to leave parcels unattended for you without the need for a signature, or if you have given the carrier instructions to leave your package with anyone other than the addressee. This includes but is not limited to a building manager, neighbor, a business mailroom, drop-off location such as Mail Boxes, etc., The UPS Store, the Military Postal Service, etc.
Additionally, we will not assume responsibility for packages that are signed for by apartment/complex building management, a business mailroom, the Military Postal Service, or any person(s) that are not the addressee listed on the order. When we ship to you, if metals are lost or damaged in transit, it is our responsibility to pursue any claim with the insurance company. If we determine the package is lost or damaged, we file a claim.
We reserve the right to re-ship your items or refund your money at our discretion.


 

Can you ship my order to my post office box?
No, we cannot ship to a post office box. 


 

Do I have to sign for my shipment?
Packages we ship may not require a signature for delivery. Expedited shipping, whether via UPS or the U.S. Postal Service, requires a signature for delivery.


 

Do you ship to U.S. territories?
We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.


 

What does “No Will Call” mean?
All UPS shipments ship with a “No Will Call” restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted. UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.


 

Where do you ship orders from?
All orders will ship from our warehouse in Los Angeles, California.  We conceal the return address on all packages so as to not hint at the contents of the package.


 

Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?
No, we do not. The costs of shipping to these states are extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments to Alaska and Hawaii.


 

Do we ship to P.O. Boxes?
No, we do not. Sorry.


 

Do you ship to UPS store locations?
No. UPS 3-Day Air service excludes shipments to UPS Stores, as well as Alaska, Hawaii and APO addresses.


 

My package appears to have been damaged or tampered with. What should I do?
We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with because the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered. When refused, the package(s) will return to BullionMax for inspection. 
If you have taken possession of a damaged or tampered package, please save all packaging and contact call us at (800) 729-3202 during normal business hours of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday – Friday within 48 hours for further instructions. Failure to notify us of damage or tampering within 48 hours from signature or delivery date may impact our ability to cover your claim.


 

What happens if my order is lost in transit?
We see very few delivery issues with our carriers, but sometimes delays do occur. In those situations, we appreciate your patience to wait a little longer for your package (at least 7 business days) before contacting us. Should the package not arrive, an investigation of the shipment is required before any order is reshipped or refunded. We may ask you to file a police report if it appears loss is due to theft or tampering. Your assistance speeds up the investigation and the sooner we complete it, the sooner we can resolve the missing order.
