These coins were demonetized and withdrawn from circulation in 2006 and many will have been melted down. They were first issued into circulation in 1967. In 2006 The Reserve Bank of NZ & the NZ Post Office issued a Limited Edition special set of coins called "Small Change Smaller Change" to commemorate the demonetisation of this coin and the redesign of the 10, 20 & 50 cent coins. The 5 cent coin in this set was dated 2003.
