2013 New Zealand 1 oz Silver Maori Art Koru Proof

2013 New Zealand 1 oz Silver Maori Art Koru Proof

Product Details

Mintage of only 2,000 coins!
The 2013 Maori Art: Koru Coin is the third coin in New Zealand Post’s Maori Art Coin series. Also included in the series is the fantastic Maori Art: Papatuanuku and the Maori Art: Hei Matau with Pounamu Stone.

The Story:
     The Koru, a symbol used to represent creation in Maori art, is founded on the form of an unrolling fern leaf. Its circular shape is suggestive of eternal movement with an eventual reversion to the original point. In essence, the Koru represents the phenomenon of an ever-changing life that manages to somehow remain the same in many regards.

The Coin:
     Then is depicted through a series of Koru patterns and is watching over his domain - in which countless piko will grow into established ferns. The intricate design features the Koru and rauponga beautifully engraved with three-dimensional relief, giving the coins incredible depth and dimension. The depiction of The Mahuta contains striking contrasts between the frosted Koru and the polished background - resulting in visually powerful coins that are not to be missed. The coin is housed within a container featuring a specially designed mangopare (hammerhead shark) pattern and it makes for a memorable gift.

          Purchased this coin as a memento of our trip to New Zealand and the coin is as beautiful as the country. A lot of thought was put into the presentation also making the whole package a great buy.

              While browsing the site this coin caught my eye. I kept coming back to it. It had a grip on my imagination. After a lot of consideration I decided to purchase this coin. When I got it and opened the package I was not disappointed. It is beyond my expectations.

                          When I saw this coin online, I thought it looked cool, but when I opened the box and saw it in person, I was speechless. The detail is amazing, in perfect condition, the collector's box was in great condition, and it had its COA and number. The coin I received happened to be #255 out of 2,000. With that low of mintage, in a few years, its worth is bound to increase.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          I was very happy with the delivery speed of APMEX. This was my first purchase with them, so I did not know what to expect. I even received an "APMEX Welcome Book." Shipping seems a bit high, but when your product arrives safe and fast, there is no complaining from me. I would happily pay it again for future orders.
