And in addition, as <k> mentioned, these are tourist souvenirs, not circulating coins.

So these are officially issued unofficial 'coins'? (Or tokens or whatever)..hmmm...

But the question is, since Tokelau is territory of New Zealand, 'officially issued' would mean issued by NZ government which must not be the case here. So how can we call them officially issued tokens? ???

Tokelau is a self-governing territory of New Zealand and therefore has the legal right to issue coins - but these are collector coins only and never circulate. Just as Alderney (itself an autonomous dependency of Guernsey, one the UK's crown dependencies) has the right to issue COLLECTOR coins, even though only Guernsey, Jersey and UK coins circulate on Alderney.

The issue is that some coins are issued out of necessity; others, like the Tokelau and Alderney collector coins, are issued only to make a profit.
