The latest in New Zealand's annual Extinct Animals releases, the 2021 version commemorates the Auckland Island Merganser. The last sighting of this duck was in 1902, and by 1910 the species was declared extinct, primarily due to predation by introduced mammals, and human interaction.

Struck from two ounces of 99.9% pure silver, the 2021 Merganser is limited to just 500 coins worldwide.
