New Zealand coin values

New Zealand coin values

The first New Zealand coinage was

minted in 1933.


Pre-decimal currency was used from

1933 to 1965, based on the United

Kingdom's monetary system, with

the same denominations and

relative values.


1 penny = 1/12 of a shilling

= 1/240 of a pound

New Zealand adopted the decimal system in

1967, replacing the penny with the cent, and

the pound with the dollar.


The ratio changed from 1:240 to 1:100.


Circulation issue denominations introduced

in 1967 were: one cent, two cent, five cent,

ten cent, twenty cent, and fifty cent, with one

and two dollar coins introduced in 1990.


Circulation issue one and two cent coins

were last minted in 1987, prior to being

demonitised in 1990.
