Coin Story

A real river monster, the Piranha is an omnivorous, freshwater fish that inhabits South American rivers and is known for its sharp teeth and voracious appetite for meat. There are various legends about Piranhas such as how they can dilacerate a human body or cattle in seconds. New Zealand Mint is releasing this striking 1 oz Silver coin, which features a contrast of relief engraving and high quality colour.
Reverse Design

This striking coin features a contrast of relief engraving and high quality colour. A Red-Bellied Piranha swims aggressively out of the coin while others swim in the background. Spanning the coin is a tear symbolizing the power and aggression of this species, while also dividing the water from a polished mirror surface against which is set the engraved words Real River Monsters Piranha.

Obverse Design

This features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.


The Real River Monsters Piranha 1 oz 999 Fine Silver coin is packaged in a classic matte black coin gift box and an outer packaging which features an underwater river scene. When opened, the coin and Certificate of Authenticity are displayed.
