The surrounding artwork represents the domain of Tane Mahuta, the God of the Forest. Tne is depicted through a series of koru patterns and is watching over his domain - in which countless piko will grow into established ferns.
The intricate design features the koru and rauponga beautifully engraved with three-dimensional relief, giving the coins incredible depth and dimension. The depiction of Tane Mahuta contains striking contrasts between the frosted koru and the polished background - resulting in visually powerful coins that are not to be missed.The coin is housed within a container featuring a specially designed mangopare (hammerhead shark) pattern and it makes for a memorable gift.
