1970 New Zealand One Dollar Coin - Royal Visit Commemorative Dollar - In Original Case
Released to commemorate the Royal Visit by HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh when they visited New Zealand between 12–30 Mar 1970 for the James Cook bicentenary celebrations, here they introduced Prince Charles and Princess Anne to New Zealand. This tour initiated the royal 'walk-about'.
The coin was struck by the RAM and issued in the usual square plastic jewel case. (285,000 copies) and was the first use of a Māori word on a New Zealand coin.
Presented in the original plastic jewel case.
The cases have sustained marks and scratches over their lifetime; however the coins remain in brilliant condition, retaining strong lustre, and detail.
This coin was removed from the case and imaged, and as you can see remains well preserved, most likely thanks to the case for its protection over the years.
All available sets remain in a similar condition.
