The hawksbill sea turtle is an endangered species living off the coast of Fiji. The Taku — as the animal is referred to by locals — has a beautiful shell that is poached by humans looking for a marketable find.
Provident Metals is honored to celebrate the hawksbill with the 2011 1 Oz Silver New Zealand $2 Fiji Taku. Each coin was minted at the New Zealand Mint and contains one ounce of .999 fine silver.
The reverse depicts a hawksbill turtle wading along the bottom of the sea, surrounded by a whirl of bubbles. FIJI TAKU is inscribed at the top right of the coin.
A portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is centered on the obverse. Her Majesty is wearing a crown, along with earrings and a necklace. It is inscribed with the words FIJI, TWO DOLLARS, ELIZABETH II and the year of issue.
The name ‘hawksbill’ comes from the turtle’s hawk-like head. The marine animal’s lifespan is typically 30 to 50 years — if it can avoid being captured for its beautiful shell, which changes color depending on the water temperature. The hawksbill has arms similar to flippers, which help them swim and walk.
