The 2014 Māori Art Coin is the fourth coin in New Zealand Post’s Māori Art Coin series. The coin shows Tāne separating Papatūānuku and Ranginui, creating the world of light. The intricate design is based on leading New Zealand artist Cliff Whiting’s mixed media mural, ‘Te wehenga o Rangi rāua ko Papa’ (the separation of heaven and earth). This well known piece of art can be seen in the reading room in the National Library of New Zealand in Wellington.

This 1oz gold proof, legal tender coin has a low worldwide mintage of just 250, so you’ll have to order soon to obtain this special coin. This striking $10 coin is contained within a wakahuia, a carved vessel created for the purpose of holding taonga (treasures).

The wakahuia has been designed and carved from black maire by Rangi Kipa and David Hakaraia. Rangi's work is at the forefront of the contemporary Māori art world. The lid features a double interlocking spiral carved into it, known as a ‘takarangi’. This design represents the separation of Ranginui and Papatūānuku. (Source: http://coins.nzpost.co.nz)
