of the ratite group of birds, along with the emu, ostrich and kiwi. As.

they evolved in isolation from the rest of the world, and essentially.

without predators, the name of the living ratite to which they were more.

This 1oz silver proof coin minted from 0.999 silver has a stylised.

image of a moa in one of its more common habitats. It’s thought that.

multiple species of moa would have shared similar regions and browsing.

areas. Here the moa is depicted in a southern landscape; snow-capped.

peaks in the background can be seen as it emerges from dense native.

An etching-like technique was used by talented artist Dave Burke to create this unique and highly detailed scene.
