Comments

The 50 cent coin of this size and composition was first issued into circulation in New Zealand 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  celebrate the redesign of the 50 cent coin and the 10 & 20 cent coins and the removal of the 5 cent coin from circulation.
