Tonga Gold Coins

The obverse shows a remarkably slim portrait of Queen Salote standing right. Sources state that she was very tall at 1.91 metres or 6'3". Her son Taufa Ahau Tupou IV weighed over 200 kilos, apparently a world record for any monarch.
The legend read

The 1962 coins have the coat of arms of Tonga on their reverse, with their denominational value above, and the word TONGA below.
