The Niue Hawksbill Turtle Silver Coins Series is a popular release among investors. Issued by the New Zealand Mint as of 2014, the series was previously available as the Fiji Taku dating back to 2010. Throughout its time as the Fiji Taku and Niue Hawksbill, the reverse image of the sea turtle species has remained the same. Today, you have the opportunity to get 2015 $5 New Zealand Niue Hawksbill Turtle 2 oz Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
The hawksbill turtle species is so-named because of the shape of its mouth which resembles the sharpened beak of a bird of prey. While this is a signature feature of the species, it is not the most easily recognized physical characteristic of the turtles. Though you wont see the colorization on these silver coins, in the real world the hawksbill has overlapping plates on its shell that are brilliantly colored.

Introduced by 2010 by the privately-owned New Zealand Mint, this coin series was initially known as the Fiji Taku. A political coup in that nation is believed to have been one of the reasons behind the series first changing obverse designs in 2013 to use the Fijian coat of arms instead of Queen Elizabeth IIs bust, and later switching to the Commonwealth nation of Niue.
