2004 New Zealand Ten Cent Coin - MULE WITH $1 OBVERSE - GRADED MS66 by PCGS #81398918

The 2004 New Zealand 10 cent was the last of the larger size cupro-nickel coins issued before the change to smaller coins in 2006. It measures 23.6mm. The New Zealand dollar coin (that didn’t change) measures 23mm. The 0.6mm difference in the size of the die resulted in 10c coins struck with this double rim. In comparison to the Australian mule this difference is about half that seen on the Australian coin. It also means the Queens portrait and legends are slightly smaller."
