The 2012 1 oz Silver New Zealand $2 Fiji Taku is 99.9% pure and features the Hawksbill Turtle, known in Fiji by its native name, “Taku.”
The Hawksbill Turtle, or Taku, are one of the two main species of turtle in Fiji, and can grow to over three feet in length and weigh over 175 pounds. They are called Hawksbill turtles due to the tapered shape of their heads that ends in a point, much like that of a hawk. These turtles are on the endangered species list, and some 3,000 make their home in the land and waters surrounding Fiji.
The obverse of the coin displays the Raphael Maklouf profile of Queen Elizabeth II. Around the profile is the inscription, “Elizabeth II - Fiji - Two Dollars,” and the date, "2010." The reverse of the coin depicts a Taku Turtle, with a stylized shell pattern, swimming in the ocean. A crescent border centered on the upper left reads, “Fiji Taku.”
First released in 2010, the Taku has quickly becoming a staple in most coin collections and bullion silver portfolios. Don't miss out on buying these 2012 1oz Silver Fiji Taku Coins before they disappear off our shelves.
