Product Details

As low as $1.99 per coin over spot!
New release! This 2014 1 oz Silver coin from the tropical New Zealand territory of Tokelau has a magnificent image of a Yellowfin Tuna swimming through a coral reef.

     These majestic fish can get up to 400 pounds and are found in the deep offshore waters of the South Pacific Ocean near Tokelau. Tokelau, the Polynesian word for “North Wind,” is a unique territory made up of three tropical coral atolls that combine into one connected ring of land mass.

     Each Tokelau Yellowfin Tuna coin is minted from .999 fine silver and weighs 1 troy oz. The 1/2 oz Silver Tuna is now also available. With a face value of five dollars and a limited mintage of 500,000, these coins make a great asset for investors and collectors alike. Individual coins will come packaged in protective plastic slips; orders of 20 will come in plastic tubes

     The reverse side of the coin shows the beautiful wide eyed tuna with an open mouth looking for its next meal near a coral reef. Etched above the tuna is its proper name, Kakahi-Yellowfin Tuna. The obverse displays the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II along with the Tuluma which is the national symbol of Tokelau. The Tuluma is a wooden tackle box used by the fishermen of Tokelau. On the Tuluma is a cross and the inscription “Tokelau mot e Atua” which means “Tokelau for God,” referencing the influence of Christianity in Tokelau.

              I found this on sale at low premium over spot and purchased it simply because I didn't have one in my collection. I like the design but can't get excited by the matte finish. It's nice as a type-piece, but I don't think I'll buy a whole tube. Overall, I find no problem with design or quality of the coin, but I prefer the shine of coins like the Aussie Croc, Somalian Elephant, and Niue Turtle.

              Ordered on Monday (shipped same day) and received on Wednesday. Way to go, APMEX - wonderful service, as always!

                      I have seen several unboxings of this coin online and all appear to be proof-like. The coins that I received have a brilliant uncirculated finish instead of the proof-like finish. Are there 2 different versions of this coin? The picture on the main page for this coin shows it in a brilliant uncirculated finish. However, the picture on the review page for this coin shows it as proof-like instead of brilliant uncirculated.

                        I originally bought the coin because the image looked stunning. I was disappointed in the quality of what I received in the mail. It has a very flat looking design, which was different from what the image on the website showed. Also, it lacked the luster of the website image. I've bought two additional coins from two different mints from APMEX (Britannia's and Silver Eagles), and the quality is far superior to what these Tokelau coins displayed. I will continue to purchase from APMEX, but just be more careful about the mint that the coin comes from in the future. It's my bad for not doing proper research. I won't buy a coin from the mint that produced these tuna coins again.

                            Attractive coins and the quality is quite acceptible. The bonus is having a coin with a face value costing only a few cents more than a silver round.

                                I just got 2 of the Tokelau Yellowfin Tuna Bullion Coins today and think they are some of the nicest coins ever,I just love collecting all types of Bullion and Coins,but mostly any kind with animals so these were perfect.I will admit my faves are still the 2014 1oz. Silver Somalian Elephant Bullion Coins,those look almost like Proofs but without the high premium (think I paid like $24 something for 2 of those.

                                But come Friday when I get my monthly deposit I plan on buying 3 or 4 more of each,and as always APMEX was great at everything,they have made a customer for life out of me.Thanks APMEX.

                                  APMEX did their best to insure the quality of these coins. Unfortunatly, this beautiful design was under cut by lack luster quality. The design is a winner, but if I had to do it over I would have chosen a different round. No reflection on APMEX. They are my "go to" precious metals source.

                                      Yes, technically the mintage is "limited", but I'm not sure a mintage of 500,000 should be advertised as something that will make it valuable. America The Beautiful 5 oz coins, on the other hand (with mintages in the 10s of thousands) are really what collectors consider to be "limited" in the sense that it affects future prices.
