The Hawksbill Turtle Series, also known as the Taku, has recently become one of the New Zealand Mint’s best-selling coins. It has been struck yearly since 2010, and is produced on behalf of Niue Island. These coins commemorate the Hawksbill Turtle, an exotic species which resides in the sea that surrounds Fiji. It takes its name from the sharp beak which can be seen near its head.
Each coin within this collection has 1 ounce of fine silver. The coins are issued with a face value of $2, and they are sold in BU, or a condition which is Brilliant Uncirculated. The level of craftsmanship displayed in the creation of these coins has been favorably compared to the U.S. Silver Eagle and even the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf. The obverse of the coin has largely remained the same since the first year of its release.
