2015 Kiwi Silver Specimen Coin

New Zealand’s iconic kiwi once again takes centre stage as the star of this special coin issue. However, this is no ordinary kiwi coin, as the intricately detailed design hides a secret – this coin glows in the dark.

Highlights:

  • Minted from 0.999 silver with selective colour
  • Worldwide mintage of 7,500
  • First New Zealand legal tender coin to use glow-in-the-dark technology
  • Features New Zealand’s iconic kiwi
  • Glow-in-the-dark design reflects the nocturnal nature of the kiwi
     

New Zealand’s kiwi is a favourite for its unique appearance and charming behaviour, but unfortunately it’s a vanishing icon. The kiwi featured on the coin, the North Island brown kiwi, is declining at a rate of nearly 4% per year, due to changes in habitat and introduced predators.

A stunning addition to any coin collection, this 1 troy oz $1 silver specimen coin is minted from 0.999 silver. This stunning silver coin features the innovative glow-in-the-dark kiwi as well as the species name bordering the coin, framed by brilliant green New Zealand ferns.
