Comments

Struck by The Perth Mint and released by NZ Post this crown sized NCLT coin came as part of a numbered two coin set. Maximum mintage was 20,000 but only 16,547 sets were produced. The other coin is a NCLT Australian oversized dollar. Each coin portrays a living icon, instantly recognisable as a symbol of its nation. The NZ coin has the Rowi (Kiwi) of New Zealand and the Australian coin has the Kangaroo of Australia.



It was also released in a separate Folder by the Perth Mint
