The New Zealand Mint has issued the Hawksbill Turtle coins since 2010. The coins were originally issued for Fiji through 2013 as the Fiji Taku, but since 2014 have been known as the Niue Hawksbill Turtle Coin. The design remains largely the same, but the obverse reverted to the effigy of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
All 1 oz New Zealand $250 Niue Hawksbill Turtle Gold Coins in this listing are available in protective packaging. The coins are offered here as a random-year offering. This means that JM Bullion cannot guarantee the date mark on the coin you receive when buying gold in this listing. Our warehouse team selects a coin for you once your payment has processed and your coins are prepared for shipping.
Niue Hawksbill coins are commonly offered in silver with lower mintage figures and availability in the gold series. For example, the 2018 Niue Hawksbill Gold Coin had a mintage of just 10,000 coins in total.
On the reverse of 1 oz Niue Hawksbill Turtle Gold Coins is the image of the namesake species. The turtle depicted here is swimming through the waters of the Pacific Ocean where it makes a home traveling back and forth between New Zealand’s north island and the islands of Fiji and Niue. Engravings include the word “Turtle” and the coin’s weight, purity, and metal content.
The obverse of 1 oz New Zealand $250 Niue Hawksbill Turtle Gold Coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the fourth-generation design introduced by the Royal Mint of England in 1998 and used throughout the Commonwealth nations in the decades since.
