New Zealand: Coin Twenty Cents 2013 (mint sets only)
CoinTwenty Cents 2013 (mint sets only)

The New Zealand small twenty cent coin has been in circulation since 2006, when the earlier large 20 cent coins were demonetised together with the one florin coins they had replaced at decimalisation in 1967 (which had remained legal tender and in circulation).

There were no 20 cent coins issued for circulation in 2013. Some were struck (in copper-nickel) for the mint sets and proof sets of the year only.

Obverse

Crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: NEW ZEALAND ELIZABETH II 2013.
