Beautifully designed, featuring one of the most splendid birds of the world, this innovative coin of Niue is sure to generate a great deal of demand among collectors. Issued as part of the Endangered Animal Species series, the coin is a unique piece of art with the limited mintage of a mere 2 000 pieces worldwide. Fine .999 silver in proof quality, vibrant digital printing and a genuine Swarovski insert make the Hyacinth Macaw coin truly gorgeous!
The obverse is decorated with a stylized tree featuring endangered animals outlined on its leaves. There is also a small effigy of Elizabeth II and the following inscriptions: the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its metal fineness, issuing country and year.
The eye-catching reverse displays two colored Hyacinth Macaw birds as well as the map showing their natural habitat. The magnifying glass is embellished with a blue Swarovski crystal. Known as the largest of all parrots, the Hyacinth Macaw is an amazing brilliantly colored bird native to central and eastern South America. It has a large, powerful beak that easily cracks nuts and seeds; its wingspan is enormous – more than 4 ft! Unfortunately, the parrot is now considered as an endangered species – no more than 5 000 birds inhabit South American rain forests. This high quality coin of exquisite design is sure to enchant even the most demanding coin collectors!
