Gold Ounce Kiwi, Coin from New Zealand
CoinGold Ounce Kiwi

The New Zealand Mint (which is private and not a government mint) is very active in the bullion coinage space. Normally, it issues legal tender coins - mostly under the jurisdiction of Niue, a New Zealand territory; however, some of its production is pure bullion, i.e. not legal tender, in one troy ounce of gold - such as this one.

The Gold Kiwi round (called also a "medallion") has been issued since 2009 (?) and is not dated.

The Mint says about it:
The unique design of the 1oz Kiwi Gold by artist Rick Lewis shows New Zealand's iconic flightless bird with head held high to reflect the nations optimistic and proud spirit.
