New Zealand 2-DOLLARS (KM79) Eastern Great Egret

The Eastern Great Egret (Ardea alba modesta) is a white heron that most taxonomists consider a sub-species of the Great Egret. In New Zealand it is known as kotuku.

New Zealand introduced 1- and 2-dollar coins in 1991 to replace the existing notes. The same kotuku design also appears on KM121 (with updated portrait of the queen).
