   Roll of The New Zealand 1845-66 Medal to the Royal Navy

New Zealand Medal This medal sanctioned in 1869 was awarded to surviving officers and men who faced the enemy during the New Zealand Wars 1845-47 and 1860-66. Less than 300 medals were awarded to the RN and RM for the first war and slightly more than 900 medals awarded to the RN and RM for the second war. The medal is one of the more complex of the British campaign series due to the different reverses which correspond to the dates of the recipients services.
