The reverse side of the coin was made by the expert medal maker Luboš Charvát. It is dominated by the iconic Soviet tank T 34/76, while a German soldier attacks it with a grenade in order to stop the armored colossus. The battle scenery is complemented by the Soviet flag and at first glance an unusual scene, a circle of children dancing around a crocodile - it is a legendary Stalingrad fountain that has survived the destruction of the surrounding city without bruising.
The obverse side of the coin is then devoted to the attributes of the Niue island, i.e the name and profile of Queen Elizabeth II, the year of the issue 2017 and the nominal value of 5 DOLLARS (NZD). The composition of the obverse side is complemented by five helmets belonging to the nations which have appeared on war coins - German, US, Soviet, British and Japanese.
