This is a new addition to the collection from my friends Trish and Brian. At the top of the spoon is a replica of the first stamp issued in 1985 for New Zealand’s Native Bird series, with an adorable bird called the Kokako on it.
There are two species of this bird: the North Island and the South Island variety. Don’t get too attached to the South Island Kokako though, because scientists are pretty sure it’s extinct.
And yes, that means this spoon is probably haunted.
