Self-Help Groceries – Going Decimal
Loading the player...
New Zealand changed to the decimal currency on 10 July 1967. The 10-shilling note pictured became the new $1.00 note.
Radio and television commercials explaining the new decimal system ran for several years in the lead-up to the changeover.
Note this advertisement still uses the "Self-Help are cheaper, cheaper, cheaper..." echo sound effect introduced in 1960.
