New Zealand, 1 dollar, 1990.  Kiwi.  This was the first year of issue for the circulation dollar coin, known colloquially as "the kiwi".

Apart from the florins and the follow on 20 cent piece.....the other "Kiwi" coins do nothing for me.......particularly the later ones, which were designed by a graphic designer. For me the later ones  are more like 2 dimensional pictures transferred to metal. ( Of Course its all a matter of "Taste")   My preference  is for the 10 cent reverse!
