New Zealand Mint is proud to issue the Birds of Prey 1 oz Silver coin series. Each of the coins within the series celebrates the beauty and power of these magnificent creatures. The Peregrine Falcon, Falco peregrinus, is a large bird of prey renowned for its speed, reaching over 322 km/h (200 mph) during ‘the stoop’, a high speed hunting dive. This makes it the fastest member of the animal kingdom. This coin face depicts a Peregrine Falcon captured in mid-flight with talons outstretched to grasp its prey. A mountainous, forest clad background is engraved in relief showcasing the kind of environment this Bird of Prey calls home. The Birds of Prey - Peregrine Falcon 1 oz 999 Fine Silver coin is presented in an elegant, classic wooden coin display case. The inner box sits inside an attractive themed high-gloss outer box. The Certificate of Authenticity is displayed inside the wooden display case.
