2017 Taniwha

While other cultures have dragons, serpents or other mythical beasts as the root of their myths and legends, New Zealand has the taniwha. A dominant creature in many M?ori legends, they were mainly said to live in water, favouring deep pools in lakes, or rough waters and rips in rivers and oceans. This powerful creature is the subject of this limited edition coin issue.
