New Zealand Waitangi Crown (Fakes are possible)  1935
New Zealand Waitangi Crown (Fakes are possible) 1935

That is a valuable coin, Doyal. The catalogs quote $3000 for well preserved coins. Looking at auction results, I think you can probably do even better than that, as follows:

worn: $2500
average circulated: $3000
well preserved: $4000
fully uncirculated: $8000

NEVER CLEAN A COIN. CLEANING RUINS VALUE.

Handle your crown with care. Keep fingerprints off. You should have it authenticated, graded, and encapsulated by one of these services: PGCS, ICG, NGC, or ANACS.

The reason these relatively modern coins are so valuable is that only about 1000 were minted. Beware of look-alikes.

Waitangi Day commemorates a significant day in the history of New Zealand. It is a public holiday held each year on 6 February to celebrate the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, New Zealand's founding document, on that date in 1840. -- Wikipedia
