From the islands of New Zealand come the only Commemorative Half Crowns ever struck. Issued for just 1 year, in 1940, these distinguished silver coins honor the nation`s Centennial - 100 years under British rule. Now 63 years later, they`re still in excellent Extra Fine/About Uncirculated condition, showing sharp features and much of their original mint luster. The obverse shows King George the VI, and the reverse depicts 1 of New Zealand`s original inhabitants, a Maori princess. With just 101,000 of these landmark coins issued, it`s no wonder they`re so hard to find today. A great opportunity for collectors - be sure to get yours.
