In 1940, a commemorative half crown was issued to celebrate 100 years of New Zealand being a British Colony. The Reverse shows a Maori maid between an ancient village and modern skyscrapers. These were used as 2/6 coins, and depict George VI King Emperor on the obverse, as all coins from that period did.
