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


The first silver specimen coin in the new 'Kiwi Treasures' series
Combines the kiwi with the native New Zealand kōwhai flower
Worldwide mintage of 13,500.


This 1oz silver specimen coin has been made from fine 0.999 silver. The kōwhai image is raised and frosted and the kiwi raised and polished – a subtly different finish that gives this coin a unique collectability. It makes a superb and timeless gift for coin enthusiasts young and old, and a great entrée to the ‘Kiwi Treasures’ series.
