The sea turtle known as the hawksbill is a critically endangered species that represents the only extant species in its genus. Distributed worldwide through warm ocean waters, the hawksbill has Atlantic and Indo-Pacific subspecies. In the South Pacific, the hawksbill has long been relevant to indigenous cultures and is known to travel between the northern coast of New Zealands north island and the islands of Niue and Fiji.
The obverse side of these New Zealand Niue Hawksbill Turtle 1 oz Gold Coins is available with a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
