2020 Niue $2 1-oz Silver Love Is Precious Birds of Paradise Colorized Proof
Show Your Love with These Colorful Birds of Paradise
The expression “love birds” has been around for decades, and this Birds of Paradise Proof beautifully embodies that notion. Struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.9% silver, this coin features an exquisite design of two birds engaged in an elaborate mating ritual. The addition of blazing color allows the birds to exhibit the passion of young lovers amid a vibrant array of colorful flowers.
The seventh release in the New Zealand Mint’s Love is Precious series, this stunning coin shows the male preening before his mate just under a red heart-shaped cubic zirconia that is set into the coin. It’s a perfect contrast to the coin’s blazing proof finish that was expertly crafted by the mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields.
Coins often offer a way to show recognition, appreciation, and other sentiments, but few are as appropriate for the one you love as this Love is Precious Birds of Paradise Coin. The coin is sure to make a beautiful gift for couples celebrating engagements, weddings and anniversaries. It also makes a great gift for anyone’s significant other at any time of the year. Plus, each coin comes in a delightful heart-shaped case that is perfect for display.
