  • Reverse: Fiji coat of arms and 2013 date.
  • Produced by the New Zealand Mint under the authority of Fiji.
Newest in the popular series from the New Zealand Mint is the 2014 5 oz Turtle, the 2014 1 oz Turtle, and the 2014 1/2 oz Turtle.

The Story:
      Hawksbill turtles are found throughout the tropical waters of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. Named for their narrow, pointed beak, they are also recognizable by a distinctive pattern of overlapping scales on their exquisitely colored and patterned shells. This species typically avoids deep waters, preferring coastlines and coral reefs where they can find sponges, a primary food source for these omnivores. Beautiful creatures, they make incredible migrations in order to move from feeding sites to tropical beaches that often serve as nesting grounds. Hawksbill turtles come to New Zealand every year from Fiji; although they’ve been sighted as far south as Cook Strait, they are mostly seen in the upper North Island of New Zealand in the clear, shallow waters of the island shelve.
     Like many sea turtles, hawksbills are a critically endangered species due mostly to human impact. Hawksbill eggs are still eaten around the world despite the turtle’s international protected status, and they are often killed for their flesh and their stunning shells that are highly valuable in some marketplaces.
     A fantastically designed bullion item, this product has grown tremendously in popularity among investors in each of the four years that it’s been produced because of its intricate design.

New Zealand Mint:
     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.

          I bought this coin because of its design and workmanship. I especially like the contrasting finishes between the dull/matte and the highly mirrored. Quite an attractive coin.

              This round is very well designed. Great artwork and clean, crisp lines leave absolutely nothing to dislike about the 2013 Taku. Buy yours and see for yourself.

                  I got the 2014, 2013 & the 2012 Fiji coins. Hands down the 2013 Fiji taku coin is the best. Get these while you can. They are very unique, just look at the back of the coin. No queen!!! that's what makes it so unique. It has a picture of the native people which is very refreshing.

                          I am a novice collector who purchases random pieces that I enjoy looking at and having in my collection. You really can't go wrong with this Fiji Taku. It's such a great design with the detailed sea turtle and is just stunning to look at and hold in your hand.
                          Also..I'm sure it will increase in value over time.

                                  Besides buying generic or high mintage bullion, I enjoy collecting unusual or pretty coins from around the world. This and the New Zealand silver ferns are unique coins.

                                      I bought this to complete my 10 coin world collection and it is probably my least favorite. I will give them credit for getting rid of the queen's face but the turtle still doesn't look very good compared to other coins I own. Also, the size of 40.5mm makes it a pain, like the ASEs and Libertads, to find capsules for. On the plus side, this is one of the lowest premium coins from any country and it does weigh in at 31.2024g, well over 1ozt (31.1034g).

                                      Service and delivery comments:

                                      APMEX processing and shipping as well as pricing is wonderful as always. If other places didn't have exclusives, APMEX would be a one stop shop for everything bullion for me.
