The hawksbill turtle is so-named for its pointed, sharp beak, and is beloved throughout the South Pacific for its brightly colored shell pattern. A resident of warm waters throughout the tropical climates of the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans, the hawksbill migrates annually from Fiji to New Zealand. The 2017 1 oz Silver Niue Hawksbill Turtle Coin is available to you online today at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships to you in a protective plastic flip, Multiples of 20 will come in a tube.
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of .999 fine silver in BU condition.
  • Issued a face value of $2 (NZD) by the government of Niue.
  • Obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse includes the Hawksbill Turtle design.

The Hawksbill turtle is found in tropical waters throughout the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans. In this region in particular, they are typically found around the shores of Fiji, except for making their annual trips to the northern shores of New Zealand. Once a delicacy in the region, local populations have now rallied to protect the species as its numbers in the wild dwindle.

Introduced in 2010 as the Silver Fiji Taku, this bullion coin from the New Zealand Mint quickly gained traction in the global precious metals market. Investors appreciated the purity, while collectors loved the design. The program ceased production as a Fiji-issued coin after 2013, and relaunched in 2014 as the Niue Hawksbill coin.

The design of the coin remained largely unchanged. The reverse face continued to feature the hawksbill turtle, a native species found throughout the South Pacific. The obverse reverted back to the use of a Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy.

On the obverse of the 2017 1 oz Silver Niue Hawksbill Turtle Coin you’ll find the image of Queen Elizabeth II, captured in right-profile relief by Ian Rank-Broadley. This design is the fourth-generation depiction of Her Majesty on British coinage and has been in use since 1998.

The reverse of the 2017 1 oz Silver Niue Hawksbill Turtle Coin includes the image of a hawksbill turtle as it swims through the bubbles and water of the South Pacific. Hawksbill turtles migrate throughout the South Pacific, from the northern shores of New Zealand to the waters of Niue and Fiji.

Each of the 2017 1 oz Silver Niue Hawksbill Turtle Coins in this listing is in BU condition. Coins in this condition have no signs of wear and tear on the surfaces, though you’ll notice the presences of minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from the coining process at the mint.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
