The New Zealand five-cent coin was the lowest denomination coin of the New Zealand dollar from 1990 to 2006. The five-cent coin was introduced when the New Zealand dollar was introduced on 10 July 1967, replacing the New Zealand sixpence coin, which - having exactly the same dimensions - remained legal tender and in parallel use.
Coins issued in 1974 circulated for 32 years before they were demonetised on 1 November 2006.

Judging by other years' patterns though, that's most probably 18,000,000 circulation coins, 15,000 in sets and 8,000 proofs.
