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.
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.
