New Zealand 6 Pence  1933 to 1965
New Zealand 6 Pence 1933 to 1965

That's a Huia Bird, Tyler, on the back. These coins come with George V, George VI, and Elizabeth II on the front.

Six pence coins from New Zealand can be valuable, but only in special cases. The modern ones, after 1946, are made of copper-nickel. Before 1947 there is a small amount of silver (0.0465 troy ounces) in each coin.

6 PENCE WITH GEORGE V (1933 TO 12936):
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $25
fully uncirculated: $80
6 pence dated 1935 are more rare and are worth about twice these values

6 PENCE WITH GEORGE VI IN SILVER (1937 TO 1946)
worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $35
fully uncirculated: $80
6 pence dated 1941 are more rare and are worth about twice these values
6 pence dated 1943 and 1944 are more common and are worth about one-half of these values

6 PENCE WITH GEORGE VI IN COPPER-NICKEL (1947 TO 1952)
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $5
6 pence dated 1947, 1948, and 1952 are more rare and catalog at $20 in well preserved condition
6 pence dated 1950 are more rare and catalog at $60 in well preserved condition

6 PENCE WITH ELIZABETH II (1953 TO 1965)
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $2
fully uncirculated: $3
6 pence dated 1953, 1954, 1955, and 1956 are more rare and catalog at $8 in well preserved condition

A 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.
