Comments

From the Reserve Bank of New Zealand website, on the significance of the design: "Koruru feature particularly strongly at the apex of the gable of a large carved house that was symbolic of the face of an important Māori ancestor from that part of the country. This particular koruru was designed by Mr. James Berry specifically for use on New Zealand currency and is representative of designs from various regions."

This coin was first issued into circulation in 2006. It was replacing the old larger heavier copper-nickel version of the 10 cent coin first issued in 1967. The Reserve Bank of NZ & the NZ Post Office issued a Limited Edition special set of  coins called "Small Change Smaller Change" to  celebrate the redesign of this coin and the 20 & 50 cent coins and the removal of the 5 cent coin.
