Description

Minted by the New Zealand Mint, these are Fiji's official silver Bullion Coins, with a $1 face value.

The Hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata bissa), or locally named Taku, is one of two main turtle species of the South Pacific island nation of Fiji. Although they have a wide distribution throughout the world's tropical regions, Hawksbill Turtles are considered critically endangered due to human fishing practises. Taku grow up to a metre in length and a weight of 80 kg, although the heaviest on record weighed 127 kg.

The reverse features a Taku with a stylized shell pattern swimming through the waters of the Pacific Ocean along with an engraved heading and the coin's metal quality and weight.
