I've had good luck lately on ebay I just received a New Zealand half crown from 1933, and I just won an 1819 half crown. The 1819 is a bit rough, but I got both for under spot so I'm happy. Gotta love world silver!

Are you throwing that out?

Wow, I'm willing to bet that 1819 is fairly rare given that New Zealand is a such a small place.

The 1819 has to be British.

Yeah good point. That is still a great coin. I think I have an 1820, which is a pretty good year. I got it on the cheap because it has some scratches on the reverse.

Yeah, the 1819 is British and maybe G3 at best. I also have an 1816 Schilling that I got cheap because someone put a hole in it. Other than that the details are probably VF to XF. It's a really cool coin.

Are you throwing that out?

New Zealand's first coins were struck in 1933,but they were not actually put into circulation until 1934.

New Zealand did have traders' currency tokens for 1/2 Penny & 1 Penny from around 1857 until 1881.These were still in circulation until around 1897,due to a perennial coin shortage.

Prior to 1933,all the coins that were legal tender were British,but Australian coins did circulate,albeit,not legal tender in New Zealand,due to the different exchange rates between the Australian Pound & the New Zealand Pound.The New Zealand Pound was pegged at a 1:1 ratio to the Pound Sterling.
