The Remembrance coin is a reminder of the impacts of WWII - the war took the life of one in every 150 New Zealanders. It changed the landscape of New Zealand society, and those impacts are still apparent today. This coin commemorates this anniversary with a wreath of native New Zealand flora.
This coin features a remembrance wreath comprised of New Zealand native plants harakeke (flax) flowers and ponga (fern) koru and fronds. Among its many uses, harakeke is prized as a durable weaving material, and here symbolises the strength and unity of New Zealand communities as they endured six years of disruption, rationing and anxiety. Koru, the coiled, unfurled fronds of New Zealand ferns, the represent hope and new beginnings brought by the end of this terrible war. Portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley, United Kingdom. Nicky Dyer, Wellington, New Zealand.
