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!
