New Zealand, 1947 Type Set Circulated
In 1947 New Zealand changed their coins over from silver to cupro-nickel. But as India got
its independence, they had to change King George VI’s title from Emperor to King the very
next year. That makes the 1947 coinage of New Zealand a one year type coinage.
You get the Halfcrown, Florin, Shilling, Sixpence and Threepence in cupro-nickel plus the
bronze Penny and Halfpenny. They were the first of the new coinage, but they only lasted a
year. All coins are in selected circulated condition. Well worth adding to your collection, after
all it is George VI and a one year type
