The Māori legend of Māui and the Sun has been beautifully captured in NZ currency, thanks to this pair of silver Proof coins. Bewitching reverse motifs and a superb presentation ensure that this pair will form an excellent centerpiece to any world coin collection.

According to legend, Māui had grown tired of rushing to accomplish his day's tasks before darkness fell. He hatched a daring plan ‐ he would capture the sun, Rā, and teach him to travel across the sky slowly. It was a mammoth task, and none expected him to succeed. But aided by flax ropes and the sacred jawbone of his ancestor, Māui was successful. In the stunning reverse designs of each coin, you can see Māui holding the ropes, and Rā tethered, respectively.

The attention to detail doesn't end there. Gold plating has been used to superb effect on the depiction of Rā, bringing the warmth of the sun to the coin's surface. And with the coins set within an acrylic block ‐ inside each presentation case ‐ the ropes form one continuous, unbroken chain. It's as though Māui continues to hold the sun in place.

Just 1,500 of these silver sets have been issued. With the gold set already sold out, it's clear that demand is fierce. Prompt action is a must!
