Kiwi are a beloved symbol of Aotearoa New Zealand, characteristic of the uniquely understated qualities that contribute to the nation’s collective identity. Also known as kiwi pukupuku, the little spotted kiwi is the smallest of five kiwi species. The little spotted kiwi is the only recent species of kiwi to have become extinct on the New Zealand mainland. However, thanks to predator-free islands and fenced sanctuaries, the population is estimated to be 2,000 and growing.

    2022 kiwi 1kg silver proof coin

    A lovely coin, nice design and a delightful 'heft' to it. So pleased I could obtain one but I had to be in very quick. However, as a private collector I agree with the previous review that it is very disappointing to see this coin and other very recent issues already for sale on Trademe (with a mark-up) from bullion traders and coin retailers. Maybe NZ Post could set a limit of say 2 coins per customer to give the amateur but 'real' collector a better chance of obtaining these very limited edition coins?

    Great coin disappointed NZ Post & Collectables are selling most of the stock to other sellers at inflated prices like My Gold
