KM#67

In 1975 a new coin was issued for the denomination. It was a scalloped shaped nickel-brass coin of 19 mm in diameter, weighing 2.59 g and with a thickness of 1.52 mm. The portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse was the one by Arnold Machin until 1983 and it was replaced in 1985 with one by Raphael Maklouf.

The coin has had the same denomination since 1975 but the design was changed in 1993, removing the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and replacing it with the Bauhinia flower. In 1997 a commemorative coin was issued for the hand over of Hong Kong to China. It featured two butterfly kites with their tails knotted together.
