    Silver Bullion Coins from New Zealand

    Located in the same corner of the world as Australia, the silver bullion coins of New Zealand are often overlooked when compared to the vast array of products available from the Perth Mint and the Royal Australian Mint. Despite the prominence of the latter mints and their bullion coin collections, the New Zealand Mint manages to capture the attention of investors and collectors with a handful of well-designed and expertly crafted silver bullion coins.

    Fiji Taku/Niue Hawksbill Silver Coin

    The most prominent coin program from the New Zealand Mint is, by far, the Taku/Hawksbill coin series. Introduced in 2010, the coin program was originally known as the Fiji Taku coin. From 2010 to 2013, the coins were issued for the nation of Fiji. From 2014 onward, the coins are issued for Niue and known as the Niue Hawksbill coin. Despite the change in the nation of issue, the primary design elements have largely remained the same. Here’s a rundown of the design elements since its debut:

    • 2010-2012 Fiji Taku: The reverse side of the coins features the Hawksbill turtle, which is known in the local Fijian tongue as the Taku (hence the original program name), swimming in the bubbly waters of the South Pacific. The obverse of the coins originally featured the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
    • 2013 Fiji Taku: The design of the Hawksbill turtle remained the same, but the opposite side of the coin no longer featured the effigy of Her Majesty. Following a coup in Fiji and political discord between the nation and Great Britain, the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II was swapped out for the Fijian crest.
    • 2014 Niue Hawksbill: Since the change to Niue, the program has maintained the design of a Hawksbill turtle on the reverse side. The obverse returned to the use of a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The only major change to the design with the switch to Niue was on the half-moon sliver on the reverse. This mirrored field previously read “Fiji Taku” from 2010-2013, but now reads simply “Turtle.”

    The New Zealand Mint offers the Niue Hawksbill Turtle annually in 1/2 oz silver, 1 oz silver, and 5 oz silver bullion options. The coins are popular among investors for a sleek design and low mintage figures, which helps draw in collectors as well.

    Packaging of Fiji Taku/Niue Hawksbill Coins

    As the primary bullion series from the New Zealand Mint, the Niue Hawksbill is available for individual purchase or bulk investment. The packaging options on the Niue Hawksbill include the following (by weight):

    • 1/2 oz: individual protective plastic or tubes of 20 coins
    • 1 oz: individual plastic or protective plastic tubes of 20 coins
    • 5 oz: individual protective capsules.

    Tokelau Series

    One of the newest silver coin collections from the New Zealand Mint is the 12-coin Tokelau Series. Coins in this series feature a different predator from the world’s oceans, with a particular focus on the animals swimming in the waters around the South Pacific island of Tokelau. Available designs to date include:

    • Tuna
    • Sailfish
    • Great White Shark
    • Barracuda
    • Leopard Shark

    Each of the coins contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver and has a limited mintage of 250,000 coins. The Tokelau Series coins are available in individual plastic, mint tubes of 20, or boxes of 500 coins (25 tubes).

    Disney Silver Coins

    One of the most diverse and abundant coin programs from New Zealand are the Disney Silver Coins. Among the coins in this program, you’ll find colorized designs and beautiful silver coins in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Designs range from Mickey Mouse themes to the vehicles of Cars and the primary characters from the film Frozen. Here’s a rundown of the available collections:

    • Mickey Mouse: The Mickey Mouse collection of silver coins features the popular face of the Walt Disney empire throughout the nearly 90 years he’s existed in cartoons, TV shows, and theme park displays. Mickey Mouse’s greatest moments, from Steamboat Willie to Fantasia are captured in silver BU designs and colorized versions.
    • Cars: All of your favorites from the Cars franchise of feature films are available in this collection. Lightning McQueen, Tow Mater, and Sally all appear in this collection with colorized designs of the feature characters on the reverse.

    Star Wars Silver Coins

    Although Disney owns the Star Wars brand now, the Star Wars silver coins that roll out from the New Zealand Mint are worthy of their own attention. The New Zealand Mint’s two primary programs here include the following options:

    • Star Wars Classic: The Star Wars Classic coins focus on the original trilogy of films from the 1970s and 1980s. The characters that made the franchise a global phenomenon are featured on silver BU coins, as well as gold bullion options.
    • Star Wars: The latest generation of films launched as a sequel to the original films, debuting with The Force Awakens in 2015 have their own series of coins as well. Each of these is different in that the coins feature colorized designs of the new characters leading the franchise forward.

    Warriors of History Silver Coins

    One of New Zealand’s latest forays into limited-mintage programs was the Warriors of History. This collection featured limited mintage figures and colorized designs of warriors from the annals of history. The collection debuted in 2016 and features each of the following warrior designs:

    • 2016 Samurai Coin
    • 2016 Vikings Coin
    • 2016 Spartan Coin
    • 2017 Knights Templar Coin
    • 2017 Romans Coin

    Each release in this series features 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver with a limited mintage of only 5,000 coins. The coins are only available inside of individual, rectangular cases with a textured cover.

    New Zealand Lunar Coins

    Like many other mints, the New Zealand Mint also offers a Lunar Series of silver and gold coins. The New Zealand Mint’s lunar coins are available in bullion and proof options with much lower mintage figures than most other coin programs in this genre.

    Production of New Zealand Silver Coins

    The New Zealand Mint is not the official sovereign mint of the nation, but rather a privately-owned mint in Auckland. It is the only mint of its kind in New Zealand and has a rich history of coining silver and gold for smaller nations throughout the South Pacific. Many of New Zealand Mint’s coin programs are produced in concert with the private Sunshine Minting of the United States.
