Specially commissioned by New Zealand Post, the inspiration for this stunning coin design was carved from local Pounamu (greenstone) by renowned contemporary Maori artist, Raponi for the $1.00 stamp in New Zealand Post’s 2009 Matariki stamp issue.

This coin has been produced to the pinnacle of proof quality, with the heitiki image in brilliant colour.
