This coin is the third in the Kiwi Treasures series that combines New Zealand’s national bird with iconic treasures of nature. The 2014 issue features two emblems of New Zealand; the Kiwi and Mitre Peak. Minted from .999-fine Silver, this 1 oz Kiwi Treasures coin is limited to a worldwide mintage of just 5,000 coins and comes complete in commemorative packaging.
The iconic mountain, Mitre Peak, is one of New Zealand’s most photographed attractions, and sits on the shore Milford Sound which is a region that attracts countless tourists each year due to its natural beauty.
Both the kiwi bird and Mitre Peak are pictured beautifully in frosty three-dimensional relief with a Proof mirrorlike background on this stunning 1 oz Silver coin. The profile of Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse.
The distinctive shape of the peak in southern New Zealand gives the mountain its name, after the mitre headwear of Christian bishops. It was named by a survey crew from the HMS Acheron.
