Its' reverse features a finely detailed depiction of Ngapuhi Maori chief Tamati Waka Nene and New Zealand's first governor William Hobson on equal footing shaking hands beneath a crown, along with the inscription "NEW ZEALAND CROWN 1935 WAITANGI". On the obverse, a portrait of King George V by Percy Metcalfe is surrounded by the inscription "GEORGE V KING EMPEROR".

Specially struck to proof standards, the highest quality possible by the Royal Mint, resulting from hand-polished dies and special attention during the striking process.
