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 1/2 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!

Due to its stunning shell that is capable of slight color changes, hawksbill sea turtles have been fished by humans so often that the species is now critically endangered. Sadly, its beauty threatens the sea turtles that call waters along the South Pacific island of Fiji as well as the Indian and Atlantic Oceans home.

Honoring the hawksbill turtle is the 2013 ½ oz Fiji Taku $1 New Zealand Mint. Each one-half ounce coin contains .999 fine silver bullion and can be corralled today by investors and collectors through Provident Metals' simple and secure online ordering system.

The coin’s obverse offers a stunning depiction of a swimming hawksbill turtle, or Taku, along with the inscriptions of “FIJI TAKU” and its weight in fine silver. On the reverse, the Fiji Coat of Arms, “FIJI,” “2013” and its denomination of “ONE DOLLAR” is displayed.

Hawksbill turtles live between 30-50 years mostly along coral reefs and shallow lagoons. It earned its name because of its beak-like mouth that resembles a hawk. The turtles feature two claws on each flipper, which also helps distinguish it from other sea turtles.

The obvious characteristic of the Taku is the pattern of scutes, or external protection, on its shell. Capturing and trading hawksbill turtles or products made from them have been outlawed with the hope of one day removing them from the endangered list.

Fiji Taku coins have a very limited mintage and could become extinct in availability soon. Own a ½ oz Fiji Taku $1 New Zealand Mint today to invest in affordable and attractive silver before it’s too late.
