Martin,
  Have you seen an example of the restrike sets? Nothing changes the fact that they are still a real have though.

I deliberately didn't take my "dealer's allocation" as I thought they were inappropriate.  I've probably lost a few thousand dollars of potential profits accordingly, but that's too bad.

Martin,
  In that case,you should let either John or Peter Eccles know.I'm sure that they'd be interested.

Why?  Allocations closed ages ago and the issue is already sold out.  John told me he'd have bought them all from me if I had taken them, but that's not the point: I did not *want* to support this issue by handling any of them.

What is the actual silver content of the $1 proof silver coin?

Tried to find it on Google and Reserve Bank site without success

Thanks - azzaro

Azzaro,
  I just checked the 2008 Premier catalogue.

The silver $1 kiwi medal-coins are .999 fine silver.Think of them as being the New Zealand equivilant of the Canadian silver $5 Maple Leaf.

My records also show that they are 1 troy ounce (31.1g) 0.999 silver.  I trust that Krause will also record this in due course :-)

Martin,
  I reckon that Krause should reintroduce 'KMM' numbers to distinguish the medal-coin issues from the circulating currency coin issues.

Do you agree with me on this?

Aidan.

I notice on the Australian site
- http://www.australiancoins.com.au/Coin-web/newzeal/dollar/1984doll.htm

e.g.

NZ Dollar Chatham Island Black Robin
Copper-Nickel: Silver: 27.2160 grams

It then mentions Silver content  - Proof only: .8095 oz

If 1 troy ounce = 31.1034768 grams, how does that work?

Azzaro,
  The silver Proof $1 medal-coins are only .925 fine silver.

The 1 Troy Oz. is the A.S.W. (Actual Silver Weight) for the silver $1 Kiwi bullion medal-coins.
