2013 1 oz Silver New Zealand Treasures $1 Kiwi Specimen

2013 1 oz Silver New Zealand Treasures $1 Kiwi Specimen

Product Details

This coin is the second in the Kiwi Treasures series that combines New Zealand’s national bird with iconic treasures of nature. The 2013 issue features the mighty Tane Mahuta, New Zealand’s largest living kauri tree believed to be between 1,500 and 2,000 years old. Tane Mahuta is Maori for “Lord of the Forest,” a fitting name for a tree that stretches nearly 150 feet above the forest floor.

The Waipoua Forest is home to both the majestic Tane Mahuta and the endangered kiwi. Both are pictured beautifully in a polished specimen three-dimensional relief with a frosty background on this stunning 1 oz Silver coin. The profile of Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse. Minted from .999-fine Silver, this Kiwi Treasures coin is limited to a worldwide mintage of just 13,500 coins and comes complete in commemorative packaging.

Maori legend tells about Tane and his many brothers who lived in a world of darkness because their parents, the Earth Mother Papa-tu-a-nuku and the Sky Father Ranginui, were in a constant embrace that would not let light in. Tane put his shoulders on the ground and pressed his feet to the sky, separating his mother from his father and letting light into the world.

The New Zealand Mint is a privately owned company in Auckland, New Zealand. It is the only privately owned mint in New Zealand, purchasing refined gold from international sources to produce coins. They have established their reputation over the past four decades for their high quality design as exhibited by their innovative commemorative gold and silver bullion products. The only precious metal mint in New Zealand, the mint uses the tag-line “Minters of the South Pacific” and produces collector and bullion coins for a number of pacific nations, including Fiji, the Cook Islands, Niue and Tuvalu.

      This is my first Kiwi, but it will certainly not be my last. I love the low mintage for a BU and the design is very elegant.
