Product DetailsThis coin is the second in the Kiwi Treasures series that combines New Zealand’s national bird with iconic treasures of nature. The 2013 issue features the mighty Tane Mahuta, New Zealand’s largest living kauri tree believed to be between 1,500 and 2,000.
The Waipoua Forest is home to both the majestic Tane Mahuta and the endangered kiwi. Both are pictured beautifully in a polished specimen three-dimensional relief with a frosty background on this stunning 1 oz Silver coin. The profile of Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse. Minted from .999-fine Silver, this Kiwi Treasures coin is limited to a worldwide mintage of just 13,500 coins, and this example has been graded a perfect 70, the highest grade possible, from NGC!
Maori legend tells about Tane and his many brothers who lived in a world of darkness because their parents, the Earth Mother Papa-tu-a-nuku and the Sky Father Ranginui, were in a constant embrace that would not let light in. Tane put his shoulders on the ground and pressed his feet to the sky, separating his mother from his father and letting light into the world.
