This wonderfully designed coin captures the beauty of the rare, endangered Hawksbill Turtle, otherwise known as the Taku. Many of these endangered turtles call the waters off the coast of Fiji their home, and the New Zealand Mint produced this 5 oz. silver coin for Fiji with this beautiful turtle on the obverse, and the Fiji Coat of Arms on the reverse.

With a very limited mintage, this expertly crafted coin may soon be as endangered as the turtle it displays. Get yours today!

Product Description

Humans who have fished for the stunning shells of the Hawksbill Turtle, have placed the species on the endangered list. The 2013 5 oz Fiji Taku Brilliant Uncirculated coin, although far less tragic, could meet the same fate due to its extremely limited mintage. Purchase this alluring $10 New Zealand Mint coin consisting of .999 Fine Silver today at Provident Metals, before it’s too late.

The obverse highlights the Hawksbill Turtle, or Taku as referred to by locals, and its stylish shell as it swims through the ocean. The words “FIJI TAKU” and its weight are also illustrated.

The reverse reveals the Fiji Coat of Arms, the coin’s value and issuing year of 2013.

The 2013 5 oz Fiji Taku is legal tender and was created by the New Zealand Mint under authorization of Fiji, where the Taku is one of the two primary turtle species along the South Pacific island. Interestingly, the Hawksbill Turtle earned its name due to its likeness to the hawks head, but its uniqueness has been a marketable find, sadly causing the species to lower in number.

This beautifully-designed tribute to the Hawksbill turtle can be secured today via Provident Metals’ convenient and secure online ordering system.

    Overall
    A very nice 5oz. coin that Provident has shipped in a capsule. Unique and beautiful design. Not quite the same proof like quality as Perth Mint but then again most coins are not.
