I would like to purchase a change holder/coin holder for standard nz coins.

Maybe something like this, but any ideas gratefully received.

Thanks!

imo it's unlikely to be commercially made and sold if you want one that fits our current coins, maybe you could design one to be 3d printed(a simple one without springs) and get it made.

I have heard of these 'coins' of which you speak. Are they not the money used in olden times before Eftpos?

The same. Also known to increase disorder in the glovebox and ashtray areas.

Interesting idea. But if there really are none then I wonder how close the euro sizes would be. Might be good enough.

Ask your friendly taxi driver or bus driver where to get them. They often have these for dispensing change.

Ah. Good idea. I have occasionally seen them Araldited to the dash but they don't seem to be in actual use anymore.
