2018 Armistice 50c Coloured Coin - UNC in Commemorative Folder
The Armistice Day Coin is a 50 cent coloured commemorative circulating coin. It holds the same value as the standard 50 cent coin so you can use it as you would a normal 50 cent coin.
This coin follows the Anzac coin minted in 2015 to mark the centenary of New Zealand's efforts in WW1 and to support New Zealand's WW100 initiatives and events.
It does not replace the existing 50 cent coin. The coin is accepted in coin and vending machines.
This coin is legal tender like all the coins minted by the Bank.
The size and thickness of the coin is the same as the existing 50 cent coin. The only change to the coin is on one side which features the official RSA’s red poppy in the middle, surrounded by a free formed remembrance wreath that has incorporated the silver fern and koru as strong New Zealand elements.
