Florin 1946: Known varieties
Variety Flat back
Mintage unknown
DetailsThe reverse die for the florin coins was re-cut some time during 1946. On the new one, among other minute variations, the feathers on the back of the kiwi bird look somewhat flatter. An unknown number of the 1946 coins, and all subsequent florins, have this version.
