Artist Statement

A coin that celebrates New Zealand’s unique Maori culture and traditions. This highly icon pays homage to the Earth and acknowledges our collective role in her guardianship. Technically and visually stunning the “Silver Guardian” features Tama-nui-te-raa (our magnificent Sun), on the obverse, and a Manaia on the reverse – a guardian of life in all of its manifestations. The Manaia is a messenger between earthly world of mortals and the domain of the spirits – in this case to acknowledge the protection of Papatuuaanuku (the land) and all her resources.
