Coin: Ten Cents 2010 (mint sets only)
Description

The New Zealand ten cent coin has been the lowest denomination coin of the New Zealand dollar since 2006, when the earlier large 10 cent coins were demonetised together with the one shilling coins they had replaced at decimalisation in 1967 (which had remained legal tender and in circulation).

In 2010, no circulation ten cent coins were issued. Some were struck (in copper) for the mint sets and proof sets of the year only.
