While presenting the coins including Maori art, it is a must to introduce this astonishing piece from New Zealand. A 10-dollar gold coin represents the Maori Legends series of precious coins to show the uniqueness of the Maori culture.


The reverse of this pure silver piece includes the creature dominant in many Maori legends, that is the taniwha. According to Maori mythology, taniwha lived in deep pools in rivers, dark caves or in the sea. They especially liked dangerous places playing the role of protective guardians. However, in some legends they are also shown as predatory being capable of kidnap women to have as wives. The creature has been captured while underwater. In its most popular representation it is shown as a whale or a quite large shark. On the reverse, the other representation is depicted – this is a dragon with a long, snake-like body. Above the image, there is the inscription “Tekau Tara”, below it – the legal tender value of the coin (10 dollars).

The obverse of the shows the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II together with the date and place of issue.

Each of the coins is delivered in an elegant display box. A numbered Certificate of Authenticity is included.

Limited mintage of only 250 pieces worldwide makes it extremely unique.
