Though small in stature and reach, the Pacific islands of Niue and Tuvalu have a large presence in the precious metals industry. Both nations back the issuance of a variety of silver coins from across a range of design programs. In both cases, these nations work with a variety of private mints around the world to produce numismatic and investment-grade bullion coins for buyers.
Niue has a well-established history in the silver coin market courtesy of the Hawksbill Turtle Series. Produced by the New Zealand Mint, a private entity, this series launched in 2010 as the Fiji Taku. In 2014, it was rebranded as the Niue Hawksbill. Like many other major, annual bullion coin releases, the Niue Hawksbill features the same static designs on the obverse and reverse. Primarily, the reverse design remains unchanged each year with its depiction of the hawksbill turtle. Beyond this program, examples of other Niue Silver Coins include, but are not limited to, the following:
Like its neighbor to the southeast, the nation of Tuvalu has a growing number of modern bullion coin collections suitable for both investors and numismatists. The majority of Tuvalu silver coin collections are produced by the Perth Mint of Western Australia, but this is not an exclusive partnership by any means. There are coins produced on behalf of Tuvalu from other smaller private mints. The nation of Tuvalu has few annual-release collections of the same design, but it does offer a range of different collections that include, but are not limited to, the following:
