Shillings and Pence to Dollars and Cents


On the 10th of July 1967 New Zealand’s currency changed from pounds, shillings & pence to dollars and cents.

The coins that were introduced were the 1c, 2c, 5c, 10c, 20c and 50c

Two half-crowns, five shillings, became 50 cents; a florin, two shillings, became 20 cents; and a “bob”, or one shilling, became 10 cents.
The coins were all designed by Reginald George James Berry
