The iconic tuatara artwork from this pre-decimal stamp has been transformed into a beautiful pin. The tuatara is a link between the lizard and the crocodile and is the sole living representative of some of the oldest creatures that ever inhabited the earth - evidence of the great antiquity of New Zealand. The tuatara is peculiar in having the relic of a third eye. It is 30 - 45 centimetres in length, covered with a grey, leathery, wrinkled skin.
