In 2014, the New Zealand Mint transferred the issuance of the Fiji Taku Coin to the neighboring South Pacific island of Niue. The nation of Niue issues the coins as the Hawksbill Turtle, abandoning the use of Taku in the name because that was the Fijian dialect’s word for the same species.
The Hawksbill Turtle is remarkable for its colorful shells on its back that interlock in an impressive pattern. Additionally, the turtles are recognizable for their sharp beaks similar to those of predatory birds like the hawk. This species of turtle inhabits the South Pacific and is known to migrate between New Zealand’s north island and the islands of Fiji and Niue when breeding.
On the obverse of all 1 oz Gold New Zealand $250 Niue Hawksbill Turtle Coins is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in right-profile relief in a design created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint of England. This design remains in common use throughout the Commonwealth.
The reverse of Gold New Zealand Niue Hawksbill Turtle coins includes the image of one of these magnificent creatures swimming in the waters of the South Pacific. The coin has engravings of “Turtle” on this face along with “1 oz 9999 Fine Silver.” The coins are issued with a face value in New Zealand dollars (NZD), the official currency of Niue.
