The Hawksbill Turtle, known as one of the most beautiful turtles in the sea, makes its home off the coast of Fiji and other tropical regions along the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans. It also lives on this elegantly-crafted 2013 1 oz Fiji Taku silver coin by New Zealand Mint, which is available to you today from Provident Metals.
This $2 New Zealand Mint legal tender coin contains 1 oz of .999 Fine Silver. The coin's obverse features the spectacular design of the swimming Hawksbill Turtle, known as the Taku, the words “FIJI TAKU” and its weight.
The reverse displays the Fiji Coat of Arms, value of “Two Dollars” and the issuing year.
Hawksbill Turtles get their name from their hawk-like head and have a lifespan of 30 to 50 years. They have the unfortunate distinction of being on the endangered list because of human fishing for their fascinating shell. This Brilliant Uncirculated coin may soon become extinct as well due to its enticing design and limited mintage, but its value to collectors and investors should live on for generations.
Procure your 2013 1 oz Fiji Taku $2 silver round by New Zealand Mint today using Provident Metals’ convenient online service, while supplies last.

OverallFrom the time I ordered my coins, to the time I got them was fast. Provident provided a tracking # as well. This was my second order with Provident, and I will return again. The Fiji Taku is probably my favorite 1 oz coin.

- I can't complain when some of these are overweight.Michaelon 5/4/13
OverallI bought a few Taku's to take advantage of the low premium. Just got my shipment today, weighed them, and found 2 at 31.34g/1.01 Troy ounces. Needless to say, I'm happy with these, and plan to stack up on these soon.
Oh yeah, it's quite a beautiful coin, too.
- Beautiful SilverPaulon 4/18/13
OverallPart of the point of buying 1 OZ bullion is the artistic style of the coin....this coin alone is worth the beautiful art work and size. Immediately your eye is drawn to the perfectly designed relief. Love the turtle, reminds me of Hawaii, even though it is Fiji. Have and will continue to buy more!!!
