New Zealand Silver Proof Dollars

New Zealand Crown Sized Silver Proof Coins
New Zealand has only had its own coinage since 1933, before that date, it used British coins.
In 1967 New Zealand changed over to decimal currency, and about the same time started to issue special coins for collectors, in the form of proof sets, dollars, and uncirculated sets. Many of these feature attractive designs. The proof versions struck in silver are particularly attractive.
Denominations range from one dollar to twenty dollars.
