The New Zealand two-cent coin was the second smallest denomination coin of the New Zealand dollar from the currency's introduction in 1967 to its demonetisation, along with the one-cent coin, on 30 April 1990. Its reverse featured two kowhai flowers, considered emblematic of New Zealand. The image was designed by Reginald George James Berry, who designed the reverses for all coins introduced that year.
Two Cents pieces were last issued for circulation in 1987. A further 24,000 were issued in 1988 sets.
According to the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, a total of 440,370,000 (440 mln) circulation coins of the denomination were minted throughout its existence.
Counting coins in mint sets and proofs, a total of 441,152,065 (441 million) coins of the denomination were minted. This is the sum of all coins listed below, minus the estimated mintage of the "Bahamas mule" which is included in the figure for the regular circulation coins of this year.
The two cent coins were demonetised on 1 May 1990.
