2016 Niue $2 Kings of the Continents - Jaguar 1 oz. Silver Proof Coin, minted by the New Zealand Mint (TAX Exempt)

The Jaguar is the fifth animal to feature in our "Kings of the Continents" coin collection, which portrays some of the most dominant and revered animals on each continent.

The Jaguar (Panthera onca), is the largest cat in the Americas and the third largest cat in the world, reaching up to 2.15m (7 feet) in length and up to 90 kg (200 pounds) in weight. Native to the Americas, these stunning, now-endangered animals once roamed a vast area from Argentina to the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Today, Jaguars are only found in very few locations in South and Central America.

The Jaguar has a compact body, a broad head and powerful jaws. Its coat is normally yellow and tan, but can vary from reddish brown to black, with black spots and rosettes covering its coat. A carnivore, the Jaguar eats anything it can catch and with its extremely strong jaws and sharp teeth, it usually kills its prey with one crushing bite to the skull.

Excellent at climbing and crawling, the Jaguar hunts mostly on the ground, but sometimes it climbs a tree to pounce on its prey from above. Unlike most other big cats, the Jaguar loves the water and often swims and hunts for fish in rivers and ponds.

The Jaguar 1 oz Silver Coin marks the fifth release in the popular "Kings of the Continents" coin collection, which portrays some of the most dominant and revered animals on each continent. The 1 oz fine silver coins in this collection are of a stunning contemporary-style design, combining colour with engraving.

This stunning 1 oz coin shows a prowling Jaguar crawling in the dense vegetation of a rain forest. The coin is encased in an elegant themed box which slides open to reveal the coin nestled in a black velvet interior. The uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity sits within the packaging.

The Kings of the Continents - Jaguar 1 oz Silver Coin has a limited worldwide mintage of 5,000 and is a must-have for coin collectors.
