Hansen's record stands scrutiny alongside Sir Graham Henry (85%), John Mitchell (82%) and Wayne Smith (70%).
Allen, a former All Blacks first five-eighth, captaining his country during their tour of South Africa in 1949, achieved almost mythical status as a coach, with 'the Needle' guiding New Zealand to a 4-0 win over the 1966 Lions, while a four match unbeaten tour of Europe was topped off by a 3-0 whitewash of France.
Hansen will not be the only man looking to extend his record with the All Blacks this weekend, with Dan Carter the first player to reach 1400 Test points last weekend.
He needs just five more penalties to equal the record set by Jonny Wilkinson of 255 penalty goals in Test history.
New Zealand need 19 more points to reach a total of 2000 points scored at Eden Park.
Owen Franks will win his 50th Test cap for New Zealand on Saturday. The tighthead prop made his Test debut in a 27-6 win over Italy in 2009.
New Zealand need to score one more penalty to become the third highest penalty goal scorers in Test history. New Zealand are currently equal with England on 1066 penalty goals. France hold the record with a total of 1108 penalty goals.
