A genuine N.Z. Shilling Coin set in an antique bronze pendant with a stainless steel chain.

The New Zealand Shilling was first issued in 1933 and featured the image of a Maori warrior carrying a taiaha “in a warlike attitude” on the reverse.

The warrior is based on a photograph of local chief Tutange Waionui, the founder of Pariroa Pa situated 2.2 km inland from Kakaramea.

In 1967, New Zealand’s currency was decimalised and the shilling was replaced by a ten cent coin of the same size and weight.
