Silver Ounce (1 oz), Coin Type from New Zealand - detailed information

Silver Ounce (1 oz), Coin Type from New Zealand (issued 2004 - )
Coin TypeSilver Ounce (1 oz)

New Zealand uses the New Zealand Dollar as its circulation currency for daily transactions. The country also issues a number of commemorative and collector coins, including in the internationally popular one ounce of silver format (abbreviated as 1 oz Ag, where "Ag" comes from the Latin word for silver, Argentum). Authorised by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, the official issuer of these coins is NZ Post - which also issues the country's postal stamps. Manufacturing of the coins is commissioned to various foreign mints.

This coin type replaced the earlier crown sized commemorative issues whose specifications followed the pre-decimal British Imperial system. Note that some earlier silver ounces were issued as silver versions of these crown sized coins.

The coins are "Non-Circulating Legal Tender" (NCLT) and not bullion because they are issued at prices much higher than their intrinsic value and are targeted at collectors who appreciate them for their artistic or sentimental value, and not at bullion investors.
