Weighing a quarter of an ounce, it is the first kiwi coin to be made from 0.9999 gold. The kōwhai branches and flowers, as well as the kiwi, are rendered in three-dimensional relief, providing a lovely tactile finish. The frosted effect of the kiwi contrasts beautifully with the polished effect of the kōwhai, resulting in a coin that displays the subjects at their beautiful best.
