The Fiji Taku coin features a unique and interesting design representing the wildlife of the small, exotic island.
The Taku coin combines the appeal of 1 oz of pure Silver with an elegant design that captures the beauty of the ocean! Nearly 3,000 of these critically endangered Takus (Hawksbill turtles) call the island nation of Fiji their home.
The obverse features a stylized design of a Hawksbill turtle, also known as the Taku, swimming along the ocean floor amidst tiny bubbles. The reverse shows a profile of Queen Elizabeth II along with the date, 2011. Produced by the New Zealand Mint under the authority of Fiji, each coin contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
