1 oz Silver Flying Fish Hahave coin, minted by a private mint in 2020.
Flying birds are unique animals that create a real spectacle for those lucky enough to experience them: their emergence from the depths of the sea and their small glide over it creates a curious and exotic scene.
This is a common sight off the coast of Tokelau, a small archipelago that is self-governing but administratively dependent on New Zealand. With the intention of exporting its culture, Tokelau entered into an agreement with a private company to manufacture and sell them on the international investment coin market.
The design of the bullion is spectacular. The cross is where we see the protagonists: two flying fish flying above the sea surface. The quality with which they have been created is perfect: the folds of their wings and fins and the scales of their trunks can be distinguished to perfection. On the background, a chaotic mixture of wavy, diagonal and perpendicular lines create the sensation of the sea.
At the top is the name of the series, Hahave, while at the bottom is the name of the issue.
As is customary for coins from this part of the hemisphere, the face of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Ian Rank-Broadley is depicted on the face and appears in the centre. In the background, a series of regularly criss-crossing lines reminiscent of hand embroidery. Below the monarch is the Tuluma, the national symbol of Tokelau, which is a wooden box used by Tokelau's fishermen with a Christian affiliation.
