Values, images, and specifications for New Zealand

coins from 1933 to 1965.

New Zealand's own coinage

was introduced in 1933, as

a result of the devaluation

of the New Zealand pound

to match the Australian pound, rather than sterling.


Prior to 1933, UK coinage was the official legal tender in

New Zealand, however Australian coins were also used

in lower volumes.


For the purposes of our New Zealand currency pages, the

pre-decimal era relates to coins minted between 1933 and 1965.
