Why does this Brilliant Uncirculated 2022 Niue Hawksbill Turtle 1 oz. silver bullion coin deserve a place in your collection?

The New Zealand Mint introduced a silver bullion series dedicated to the Hawksbill Turtle in 2010, issued by the Fiji Islands. The series became a release of the island nation of Niue in 2014, where it has remained an annual issue. Hawksbill Turtles prefer to inhabit coastlines and coral reefs, and are known to make annual voyages between Fiji and New Zealand. Hawksbill turtles are critically endangered, as their eggs are considered a rare delicacy and their shells are treasured for their fantastic colors and patterns.

  • This 2022 Niue Hawksbill Turtle coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
  • The bullion coin measures 40.50 mm in diameter.
  • The coin is $2 (NZD) legal tender.
  • The coin is minted with a stunning Brilliant Uncirculated finish.

Charming Hawksbill Turtle Imagery

Obverse: A right facing portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II wearing a jeweled tiara is located on the obverse. Surrounding inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "NIUE," "TWO DOLLARS" and "2022." This effigy of the monarch, which is recognized as the fourth definitive coinage portrait, was created in 1998 by renowned British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.

Reverse: A Hawksbill Turtle with an exquisitely ornamented shell is portrayed on the reverse swimming in the Pacific Ocean, contrasted against a background textured with sand and bubbles. "TURTLE" is inscribed in a smooth crescent shape near the coin's rim, while "FINE SILVER .999 1 OZ" appears below in the rough sand.
