Comments

From the Reserve Bank of New Zealand website, on the significance of the design: "Koruru feature particularly strongly at the apex of the gable of a large carved house that was symbolic of the face of an important Māori ancestor from that part of the country. This particular koruru was designed by Mr James Berry specifically for use on New Zealand currency and is representative of designs from various regions."

Note: many recalled and melted in 2006.
