New Zealand 6 Pence 1933 to 1965
That's a Hula Bird, Tyler.
Six pence coins from New Zealand are not very valuable. The modern ones, after 1946, are made of copper-nickel and are worth a few dollars only if in very good numismatic (coin collector) condition. Pre-1947 coins run approximately as follows:
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $8
well preserved: $35
fully uncirculated: $80
A few post-1946 dates are slightly more valuable, as follows:
1950 catalogs for $15 in average circulated condition
1957 no shoulder strap (see picture) catalogs for $17 in average circulated condition and $400 in fully uncirculated condition
In general, coins with Queen Elizabeth without a shoulder strap are worth more than coins with a shoulder strap. The 1957 date is the most valuable of the strapless variety.
As always, CoinQuest quotes catalog value and you must convert these values to actual buy and sell values, which are lower. See our Important Terminology page (link at upper left) for an explanation.
