As part of the First World War five year programme, New Zealand Post will issue legal tender commemorative coins. These highly collectable and intricately designed silver proof and gold proof coins highlight New Zealanders roles in the war in 1916. The five-year silver proof coin continuity set looks at the role of the HMS New Zealand in the Battle of Jutland.The third in our special five-year continuity set, this 1oz silver proof coin with selective colour illustrates New Zealand's involvement in the Battle of Jutland, which would prove to be the war's biggest naval battle. The Imperial German Navy's High Seas Fleet attacked the larger British Royal Navy Grand Fleet on 31 May 1916, near Denmark's Jutland Peninsula, and the battlecruiser HMS New Zealand helped the British to hold the line. Tactically it was a draw, but strategically it proved a British victory and a critical point in the war. Portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley, United Kingdom. The HMS New Zealand at the Battle of Jutland.
