The obverse of 2022 Proof Colorized New Zealand Silver Kiwi Coins features Queen Elizabeth II. When this portrait was designed by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998, it was only the fourth design of Her Majesty used for British coinage. The country, year, weight, and purity are listed along the rim.
On the reverse side of 2022 1 oz Proof Colorized Silver Kiwi Coins is a pair of Kiwis surrounded by foliage. One Kiwi is fully grown, while the other is just a baby. Together, they seem to be searching for food. They are depicted in full color, which lends them a life-like quality. The words One Dollar Little Spotted Kiwi Apteryx owenii are shown along the edge.
While they do have wings, Kiwis are exclusively terrestrial creatures. They are native to New Zealand and typically can be found in heavily wooded areas. Their diet consists mainly of grubs, worms, and fruit, which they hunt for during the night. While they appear fairly meager, these birds have surprisingly long lifespans of up to 50 years. In total there are five species in the Kiwi genus, with the Apteryx Owenii being featured on the coin in this particular listing.
