Five Year Silver Proof Coin Set Includes 2014 and 2015 Coin

As part of this centenary issue commemorating the brave New Zealanders who fought for King and Empire, we’re pleased to be issuing a special continuity coin issue. For each year of this five-year programme, New Zealand Post will be issuing a 1oz silver proof coin will focus on the different roles that New Zealanders had in the war.
 

Highlights:

  • Minted from 0.999 silver with selective colour
  • Limited worldwide mintage of 1,000
  • Coin is the first in a highly collectable five coin continuity set
  • Continuity set comes with a complimentary collectable pressed tin, made to resemble those gifted to soldiers in World War I by HRH Princess Mary at Christmas
  • Collectable coin set with each coin representing the different roles that New Zealanders had in the war
     

The second coin in our special five-year continuity set, this 1oz silver proof coin with selective colour portrays the important role that the New Zealand Medical Corps played throughout the war. The first New Zealand casualties returned home in July 1915, mostly wounded from the first days of the Gallipoli campaign. The scale and impact of the war became much more apparent to those on the front line, those caring for the wounded and those waiting at home. On the right of the coin, New Zealand soldiers in Gallipoli carry a wounded comrade to help, and on the left a New Zealand soldier has returned home to recover in one of New Zealand’s increasingly busy hospitals.

Note: If you previously purchased the 1914 coin you should have been contacted about purchasing the 1915 coin to add to your set.
