The New Zealand Mint has produced for this year a 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany Silver Coin.
This is a proof coin with .999 percent pure silver content with a face value of one dollar. It was actually struck by Valcambi of Switzerland for the New Zealand Mint. Valcambi is a high quality refiner specializing in precious metals and produces bullion bars and coins among many other metal products.
There is a limited edition of the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany Silver Coin. Only 25,000 were minted so when they are sold the value of the coin is quite likely to rise.
The obverse has the picture of the Queen and the reverse depicts a picture of New Zealand and a footballer stretching out with a football (pictured).
This is a very nice coin and would make a worthy addition to any coin enthusiasts collection.
New Zealand produce many fine high quality coins and proof coin sets of both silver and gold.
The 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany Silver Coin is probably one of the finest and will also appeal to world cup enthusiasts world wide.
