New Zealand Shilling 1933 to 1965
Your coin is modern, Chris. It is worth face value. The same reverse design goes back to 1933, but the portrait changes over the years according to the British Monarch: George V, George VI, and Elizabeth. Some of the early dates carry numismatic (coin collector) value. In fact, if you can find a proof version of this coin, it is worth big bucks: 100s of US dollars. Proof coins are special coins minted solely for collectors; they do not enter circulation.
Coin: 2332 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies

The mintage numbers give a other view and tell me that the 1942 is the ultimate key-date of the silver ones.
I'm sure collectors will pay big bucks for the 1942 compared to the other years.
