The Maori Warrior Mask on this coin, depicts the HAKA dance, which includes: showing the whites of the eyes, poking out tongues, slapping the hands against the body, stamping feet, and a series of loud cries and grunts. War Haka dances were originally performed by warriors before a battle, to proclaim their strength and prowess, in order to intimidate their enemy.
