A Whale Tooth Tale

All cultures have objects that are highly treasured. In many countries, some of these objects might be shown on coins or paper currency. In Fiji, the tooth of a whale is shown on the 20c coin.

Tales from Te Papa is a fascinating series of mini-documentaries showcasing many of the exciting, wonderful and significant objects held in our national museum.

Tales from Te Papa was commissioned by TVNZ 7, in partnership with Te Papa.
