Detailed information about Coin: Ten Cents 1970 from New Zealand
On 10 July 1967, New Zealand's former pre-decimal pound currency, pegged to the British pound, was changed to a decimal dollar at a rate of two dollars to a pound. Therefore, 10 cents was worth a twentieth of a pound. The 10 cent coin replaced the shilling coin.
The old 10 cent coins were demonetized on 1 November 2006. Many were melted.
