Mintage of only 8,500 coins! These handsome coins are the second in a three-year series that presents New Zealand’s most loved bird, the kiwi, together with another distinctly ‘New Zealand’ icon. In 2010 the image is the Southern Cross – New Zealand’s official emblem and one of the smallest constellations known. This $1 silver proof coin has been crafted from pure 0.999 fine silver and packaged in a leatherette display case that includes an individually numbered certificate of authenticity. With a maximum of only 8,500 available, these are sure to be a popular choice for discerning collectors in New Zealand and around the world.
