Wow, as Mr Magpie says on his blog, every car restorer finds a lucky talisman in the car they are doing up. Mine showed up in a cranny of the JB van. A 1964 NZ Florin. Many NZ coins were minted in Australia, perhaps this one has finally come "home".
How much is it worth?
A New Zealand 1964 Florin, uncirculated and in absolute mint condition could fetch up to $18 NZD. If it has been rattling around in somebody's pocket but still in good condition, it might fetch up to $3 NZD.
There were 7 million minted.
A reputable coin dealer will be able to give a more accurate valuation.
Oh well, I think I will keep it hidden in the van for the next person. Also in there was a bone handled knife with a heavily sharpened blade. Scary!
