2012 Kiwi Treasures Silver Specimen Coin

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.
