Description

New Zealand.

Predecimal currency type set.

From European settlement, New Zealand relied on a mix of coins and Traders Tokens for circulating currency, with British coins becoming legal tender in New Zealand in 1858.

By the 1930's, international currency problems combined with a coin shortage convinced New Zealand that a distinctive national coinage was essential.

In 1933 the following denominations were struck:

Threepence, Sixpence, Shilling, Florin and Halfcrown. With a Halfpenny and and Penny first stuck in 1940.

Circulated coins with mixed dates and grades.

695 were produced in 2009.
