New Zealand Half Crown  1933 to 1965
New Zealand Half Crown 1933 to 1965

Countries in the British Empire change the 'heads' side of their coins to portray the current monarch, so your 1935 coin has a different king than George V in our picture. But the 'tails' side stays the same from 1933 to 1965.

Half crowns like this dated before 1947 contain 0.227 troy ounces of silver, so part of their value comes from precious metal content. But most of the value comes from coin collector demand. Here is what the coin catalogs say about these neat coins:

Before 1936:
worn condition: $5 US dollars
average circulated: $20
fully uncirculated: $200

Between 1937 and 1946:
worn condition: $5
average circulated: $12
fully uncirculated: $125

Between 1947 and 1949:
worn condition: $1
average circulated: $4
fully uncirculated: $100

After 1949:
worn condition: $1
average circulated: $2
fully uncirculated: $10

These are catalog values. Be sure you understand what this means. Use our Important Terminology page.
