On top of that, they strive to produce coins that are “fun”, featuring not only New Zealand culture and history but also famous characters from modern pop culture. 

New Zealand Mint Coins

Niue and Fiji Coins

The New Zealand Mint coins are often legal tender for the Pacific nations including Fiji and Niue.

Niue is a small island located in the South Pacific approximately 1,500 miles northeast of New Zealand. It is also often called the “Rock of Polynesia”, and the name “Niue” means “to behold the coconut”. The New Zealand Mint produces both gold and silver commemorative coins and circulating coinage for the island. Although Niue uses New Zealand currency, they are a self-governing state in “free association” with New Zealand. 

Fiji is another island part of Oceania in the South Pacific, about 1,300 miles northeast of New Zealand. Also a self-governing commonwealth nation, they were part of the Royal British Empire. The New Zealand Mint also provides coins for this nation today, in the form of commemorative and circulating coinage.

NZM Double Dragon Coins
