Investors were disappointed to say goodbye to the Fiji Taku bullion coin in 2013 — thanks to changes in governmental licensing agreements — but the New Zealand Mint has unveiled a new silver coin to be released in its stead: the 2014 1 oz Silver Niue Hawksbill Turtle.
Composed of .999 fine silver, each coin features the image of a hawksbill sea turtle swimming in the Pacific, similar to the original Fiji Taku coin. It is inscribed with the words TURTLE and 1 OZ 999 FINE SILVER.
The obverse features Ian Rank Broadley’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. It is inscribed with the words QUEEN ELIZABETH II, NIUE, TWO DOLLARS and 2014.
Produced by the Sunshine Mint, investors can now order the 2014 1 oz Silver Niue Hawksbill Turtle from Provident Metals. Get yours while supplies last!
About the Hawksbill Turtle
Classified as critically endangered by the World Conservation Union, the hawksbill sea turtle was once the earth’s key source of decorative tortoiseshell.
Living primarily within coral reefs, the omnivorous reptiles’ favorite source of food is the sea sponge — making it one of the world’s only creatures known as a “spongivore.”

" Glad I ordered a new Turtle from Provident to go along with my 2 yr. old FIJI TAKU turtle coin from 2012. Even thought now made by Sunshine Mint for New Zealand, the detail and appearance was just as nice as I hoped for. Glad these Turtles are not discontinued and now US made product,too. My Grandkids seem to really love my coins featuring animals, more than Liberty Ladies or Morgan reproductions. My Silver ZOO now includes lots of interesting coins and they always want to see my " Animal Coins"! When I pass these down someday, they will never spend these or cash them in, as the coins we enjoyed looking at (all in Air-Tites) will hopefully give them an early appreciation for collecting some, for their future and their offspring. Provident helps make memories."

" Spectacular looking one ounce coin struck in .999 pure silver. The obverse side features a Hawksbill turtle swimming in relief against a Sandy grainy bottom whilst it is surrounded by circular air bubbles. The shell of the Hawksbill is done in a stylized motif in the shape of an oblong spiral. The finish is specular and brilliant exactly what one would want in a uncirculated mint coin. This a gorgeous coin to own and dream of owning more."

" Of all the coins I have, this is my new favorite. So simple yet so beautiful, both sides are amazing but the turtle side really pops. You won't be disappointed."

" Great looking coin. I really like the way the turtle stands out in proof like quality against the background. Adds a 3D effect. Very nicely struck. As usual received the coin in pristine condition. The pickers really take great care in packing the products. Not a scratch, dent or even a smudge. Looked like it just came off the press and polished. 5 star on this coin all the way. The picture does not do it justice. Another great fast & seamless transaction . Great doing business here.Just ordered the new Provident prospector and the 6th installment Zoombucks feast dollar. Placed it on Thursday received confirmation of shipping on Friday. Hard to beat that. Peace, Love & Happiness to all. Leon / KY"
