The Rotary Club of Downtown Auckland was the first organisation to issue Telecom phonecards as a means of raising funds for charity. The cards carried a premium over the face value and are known as Fund Cards.

NZ-F-1 can be found with three different backs. The CC1B control number on a silver strip, CC1B not on a silver strip, and 7NZDB on a silver strip.
The CC1B not on a silver strip is the most common of the three.

The front of each card also reflects a different shade of background.

NZ-F-1 & NZ-F-2 were also included in the Collector Pack AdCards Volume Three NZ-CP-15 and were overprinted on the reverse with 1993 Collector Issue.

NZ-F-3 & NZ-F-4 were also included in the Collector Pack AdCards Volume Four NZ-CP-22 and were overprinted on the reverse with 1993 Collector Issue.

The four cards were also issued in a limited edition Collector Pack of 500, that looks like a Telecom Pack, but was actually produced by the Rotary Club Of Downtown Auckland, illustrated below.
This Collector Pack was also the only source of the Private Issue overprinted card, Milford Sound.

Illustrated below are the reverses of the four original cards
