Dear Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet,

Will the Government release a separate King Charles III’s coronation medal for New Zealanders.

In an FYI request in 2021, it was said that the decision as to whether New Zealand would issue its own medal is for the Prime Minister. So what is the Prime Minister's take on this matter?

Yours faithfully,
