The 10-cent coin is the lowest denomination coin in New Zealand currency, and replaced the New Zealand shilling coin in 1967. As part of changes to New Zealand currency in 2006, the circulating coin became smaller and is now made of copper-plated steel. The reverse features a koruru (carved mask) with heke (rafter) patterns.
When introduced in 1967 the 20-cent piece replaced the New Zealand florin coin. Initially the coin featured a kiwi, but this was changed in 1990 to a carving of Pukaki, a well known chief of the Ngati Whakaue tribe. When the silver decimal currency was changed in 2006, the 20-cent piece was redesigned with a'Spanish flower' milling. The largest denomination of the original decimal coins, the 50-cent piece replaced the crown coin (five shillings) in 1967. 2015 The Spirit of Anzac' commemorative 50-cent coin.In March 2015 to commemorate 100 years of the Anzac spirit, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (with New Zealand Post) released this special commemorative circulating coin.
