Following the barnstorming success of the Heitiki coins, New Zealand has issued another groundbreaking tribute to the rich, fascinating traditions of Maori art.
Part of a mintage of just 3,000, this sensational new Silver Proof is distinguished by a portrayal of hei matau – a pendant treasured by the Maori as both a ceremonial adornment and a talisman of days of old. The perfect complement, the 38.60mm flan of each 1oz .999 fine silver Proof also features a genuine piece of New Zealand greenstone. Also known as pounamu, a treasure held in high esteem by the Maori people, this is the very first legal tender issue to feature this distinctive stone.
With huge demand expected – the Hei Matau Gold Proof sold out instantly – we have been granted only a small allocation of coins – each set in an official, attractive leatherette case.
