This stunning silver proof coin beautifully portrays two of New Zealand's natural treasures - the kiwi and the kōwhai.


The first silver proof coin in the new 'Kiwi Treasures' series
Combines the kiwi with the native New Zealand kōwhai flower

This 1oz silver proof coin has been made from fine 0.999 silver. The kōwhai branches and flowers, as well as the kiwi, are rendered in three-dimensional relief, providing a lovely tactile finish. The frosted effect of the kiwi contrasts beautifully with the polished effect of the kōwhai, resulting in a coin that displays the subjects at their beautiful best.

With a mintage of just 5,000, this $1 coin is sure to be popular.
