2018 Maui and the Sun - Tama Nui-te-Ra Silver Coin Set

Ra is still held fast by Maui's flax ropes as depicted on the these stunning 2 x 1oz silver proof coins.

The heroic legend of Maui capturing and slowing the sun is depicted in these two 1oz silver coins. The mighty sun, Ra is captured with detailed gold plating, while Maui is portrayed holding fast the ropes he used to slow Ra. The coins are laid out in an acrylic block in a way which mimics the legend. The ropes held by Maui are etched into the surface of the acrylic block and line up with the ropes attached to Ra so that Maui appears to still be holding the sun in place.

These stunning coins are minted from 0.999 silver and come housed in a premium display case with a striking red leather band across the top. Each set comes with an individually numbered certificate which gives a quick overview of the legend of how Maui slowed the sun.
