New Zealand coins price guide and values - Pre-decimal coins

Before decimalisation in New Zealand, the pound was the currency from 1840 until 1967. Half penny (½d), penny (1d), threepence (3d), sixpence (6d), shilling (1s), florin (2s) widely circulated in the country. Half crown (2½s) and crown (5s) were rarely seen in circulation. Crowns were only minted in 1935 for the Treaty of Waitangi, in 1949 to commemorate the Royal Visit and in 1953 for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

The value of a New Zealand pre-decimal coin depends on several factors such as quality and wear, supply and demand, rarity, finish and more. Values in the section are based on the market, trends, auctions and recognized books, publications and catalogs. This section also includes information on errors and varieties and characteristics.
