This incredible silver coin is the first issue in the new series “Amazing Animals”, dedicated to the incredible world of animals. In this issue: Chameleon. While color can be a divisive addition to many coins, we don’t think anyone will complain here. The holographic enamel application allows the depicted chameleon to successfully reproduce the changing hues that typify the animal in reality, it gave its name to a whole form of camouflage – chameleonic. You can see it working in the video, and because of the way it’s applied, each one will be subtly different. The entire coin has a humorous tone, right down to the font used and its placement.
The obverse has a neat, spiral texture that apes the almost as famous curled tail of this unique creature. The effigy of Queen Elizabeth II is there, but the inscriptions are relatively unobtrusive, including the unusual $7 NZD denomination.

Chameleons are distinguished by their zygodactylous feet, their swaying gait, and crests or horns on their brow and snout. Most species, the larger ones in particular, also have a prehensile tail. Chameleons’ eyes are independently mobile, but in aiming at a prey item, they focus forward in coordination, affording the animal stereoscopic vision.
