It is 135 years since the silver fern first appeared on the breast of a New Zealand rugby jersey. Since then, nearly 1,200 All Blacks have worn this now-famous icon.
The design of the 2019 All Blacks coin is about legacy. The kaitiaki, or guardians, that sit either side of the All Blacks logo represent the protection of the legacy of the All Blacks team. The one on the left symbolises the past and the one on the right is about paving the way ahead, setting a standard to be aimed for and upholding the proud history and record and legacy that is the All Blacks. The All Blacks logo in the middle represents the current team. The overall design represents past, present and future. The koru shapes around the edge symbolise growth, reaching upward toward the light, strength, perpetual motion, new beginnings, returning to a point of origin, and is a symbol of the unfurling fern frond. When fully-grown it becomes the silver fern.
