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 shells. This species prefers coastlines and coral reefs where they can find sponges, a primary food source for these omnivores.

Making incredible migrations to move from feeding sites to tropical beaches that 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.

Last Fiji Turtle

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I love the Niue Taku, I wanted to have the 2013, the last year Fiji was on the coins. Small scratch when it arrived, near the turtle... I don't usually have issues with APMEX coins, but this scratch makes it less attractive.


  • Pros
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Bottom Line
  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Neither fish nor fowl, but got what I ordered

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

+ + Attractive design - Nice mirror finish. And I like the background very mat finish. But the very shiny turtle I am less impressed with. However, I was expecting a deeper cut design. Mexican Libertads look more serious. I do however like turtles, which is why I bought this coin, nothing to do with value. Coat of arms looks more attractive and detailed than in photo. I am glad I ordered just one, as a novelty and a test really, because in person it doesn't impress me. + Enclosure - I like having the APMEX brand on the folder. - The obverse exterior edge circle I find a wee bit larger than it needs to be. ++ Ag content marked, albeit very small letters ++++ Availability - This coin is hard to find. Competitors did not have it or charged more. None of my local Fijian grocery stores in Vancouver had it. - Mintage - unpublished. I have enquired from 'New Zealand Mint' what it is and whether it is an open mintage (such as some art bars, the molds for which were sold and production continued long after the dates) ++ 'Nation' - Fiji (Melanesians and Indians) appeals to me more than Vanuatu (offshore banking haven) - - Round - Is this a real coin or a round? It is produced by a private mint in New Zealand yet it is marked 'two dollars'. When I contacted the mint asking for clarification, "Does New Zealand Mint have any affiliation with the government/money supply/Central Bank?", they replied straighforwardly, 'No'. More honest than Federal Reserve!


  • Pros
  • Mint Condition
  • Attractive Design
  • Cons
  • Common (higher mintage)
  • Bottom Line
  • Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

The best of the Fiji taku coins

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

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.

Love the design...

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

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.
