High Grade new Zealand Six Pence graded by ANACS

Coins-World | mrbrklyn

Over time I have had some fustrations with my growing interest in New Zealand coinage from the 30's and 40's. I fell in love with the six pences which protrayed an extinct bird called Huia bird sitting on branch. These 50% silver coins where widely cleaned harshly by native New Zealanders and finding high grade examples in the world is a challenge. A great number of what I think are fine coins end up coming back as detailed grading. I recently got back a batch I sent to ANACS and one came back MS65! So I was excited with that. These things can get quite price in high grades. I have a few more to show off, but I will break them out, including a lovely 1 Penny Red with an MS grade from 1942 with statutest feeling to it.

One has to eventually turn out :) You need to give a tip of the hat to ANACS conservation services. They are always worth it, especially with middle aged silve like this.

I liked the coin So I went to ebay. I found one I like. Graded MS 62 the year I will check. I believe its a 1934. I will check. It is a 1934 for 62.00 or best offer. Just trying to help. They have a MS 65 also! Since your collecting them I will not buy it.

It's always sad to see birds portrayed on coins no one will ever see in the wild because they are extinct. I have a 1971 10-Rupees coin from Mauritius featuring an extinct dodo bird. https://coins.www.collectors-society.com/wcm/coinview.aspx?sc=16969

I should keep it quiet. If too many collect them, I will end up paying for it.

Now this one I'd agree on the grade. The patina this example exhibits is extraordinary. I know what you mean about locating higher grades and the prices associated through my own assembling of the Irish coinage from 1928-1969. I most certainly will be seeking out at least one sixpence for my own collection.

The Irish had some interesting coins in the period, with Galeic and Harpes :)

MS65 ! You have a winner. How many are graded that high I wonder. Makes me want to collect them myself !! Nice coin.

They are fun to collect because A) They are nice coins with an attractive design (FWIW they are about the size of a Merc) B) They are not easy to find in good condition C) They are inexpensive, mostly. :) It is a great starter series for new collectors.
