Features a stunning image of the tūī, a bird unique to Aotearoa New Zealand.
The hero of this coin is a stunning photographic image of the tūī feeding from harakeke, New Zealand flax, with the background of the central image printed over a layer of white ink to highlight the bird in the foreground. This vivid image will be framed by the engraved high-relief kaitiaki (guardian). The kaitiaki not only acts as a unifying feature that acknowledges Māori as tangata whenua (the people of the land), but is a minder or caregiver, protecting the taonga (treasure) encapsulated by the coin.
