Kiwi Gold Bullion Coin - New Zealand


Fineness: .9999 Actual Gold Content: 1 troy ounce (31.1035 grams) Diameter: 32 mm

The obverse design of the Kiwi gold bullion coin features what the renowned wildlife artist Rick Lewis calls “the proud kiwi” in full-length profile. The Kiwi itself is New Zealand's iconic and flightless national bird. On the reverse of gold Kiwi coin is a map of New Zealand with the stars of the Southern Cross constellation superimposed with the traditional Maori name for the islands, Aotearoa, across the top – the phrase loosely translates to mean “land of the long white cloud."

The New Zealand mint has been producing gold coins from its Auckland location since the 1960s. The Kiwi gold bullion coin, like the American Buffalo coins introduced much later, are the standard issue bullion coin offered to investors. In addition to the many gold coins that are produced there in .9999 fine 24-k gold, bars are also produced for the serious investor buying gold bullion.
