This modern silver bullion coin, the New Zealand Kiwi 1oz silver coin, was issued in 2012 as the first coin to start the series entitled Kiwi Treasures Specimen. It comes in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and has a face value of $1 and has already gained its popularity among investors and collectors. The Kiwi is also engraved on gold bullion coins issued also in 2012 for the series with the same name.
The New Zealand Kiwi 1oz silver coin weighs one troy ounce or 31.10 grams of pure silver, silver with a fineness of 99.90%. It may seem a little bit pricier compared with other silver 1oz bullion coins but the reason is its high value that comes with this price and also the future profitability of the New Zealand Kiwi 1oz silver coin due to its low mintage.
The New Zealand Kiwi 1oz silver coin is a coin that excels also in design. The reverse is realized in three-dimensional relief and depicts two famous New Zealander symbols: the kiwi realized with a frost effect and which gives the name of the coin and implicitly of this series started in 2012 and the kowhai branches which have been realized with a polished effect. The kowhai tree is a small, woody legume tree native to New Zealand. The name kowhai comes from the Maori word for yellow—a reference to the colour of the flower. The blooms of the kowhai are widely regarded as being New Zealand's national flower.
It is a design beautiful in its simplicity and due to its highly technologized effects. The only inscription found on the reverse of the New Zealand Kiwi 1oz silver coin is the $1 denomination.
The obverse of the New Zealand Kiwi 1oz silver coin illustrates the engraver of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, which has his initials engraved under the neck of Her Majesty. Other inscriptions are NEW ZEALAND the issuing country, 2012 the minting year, and ELIZABETH II.
Only 13,500 silver coins with the Kiwi engraved on them were minted, which is properly described as really scarce mintage.
With such a low number of coins issued the premium is highly to increase rapidly. Therefore, the New Zealand Kiwi 1oz silver coin from 2012 should be a priority for many investors and collectors worldwide. Collectors should take advantage while the New Zealand Kiwi 1oz silver coin is at an affordable price in order to acquire this first bullion coin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from the Kiwi Treasures series.
The New Zealand Kiwi 1oz silver coin has many characteristics that make it a desirable investment. It is an asset that represents one troy ounce of pure silver, in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, and most of all it is issued in a very low mintage.
