About 2020 Discover New Zealand - Tui Silver Proof Coin

Collect the first in the Discover New Zealand series with a stunning coin celebrating New Zealand’s unique tūī bird.

Highlights:

The first coin in a new series celebrating New Zealand’s natural wonders

Minted from 0.999 silver with selective colour

Low worldwide mintage of 1,000

Features a stunning image of the tūī, a bird unique to Aotearoa New Zealand.

The hero of this coin is a stunning photographic image of the tūī feeding from harakeke, New Zealand flax, with the background of the central image printed over a layer of white ink to highlight the bird in the foreground. This vivid image will be framed by the engraved high-relief kaitiaki (guardian). The kaitiaki not only acts as a unifying feature that acknowledges Māori as tangata whenua (the people of the land), but is a minder or caregiver, protecting the taonga (treasure) encapsulated by the coin.
