Front: Portrait of Rutherford of Nelson (1871 - 1937), known as the father of nuclear physics. Lord Rutherford was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1908 “for his investigations into the disintegration of the elements, and the chemistry of radioactive substances”. Overlaying the medallion is a graph plotting the results from Lord Rutherford’s investigations into naturally occurring radioactivity. The pattern used as a background on the $100 is called Whakaaro Kotahi from the Wharenui Kaakati at Whakatu Marae in Nelson.
