The New Zealand dollar (NZD) has been the country’s official currency since 1967.
As with other dollar systems, there are 100 cents to each dollar. Coin values are 10, 20 and 50 cent – but don’t try to use a Kiwi 5 cent piece if you stumble on one – they were taken out of circulation in July of 2006.
The notes currently in circulation are for the dollar value of 5 (orange), 10 (blue), 20 (green), 50 (purple) and 100 (red). Each banknote features an image of a native New Zealand bird on one side and a notable New Zealander on the other.
Today’s NZD Exchange Rate*: 1 AUD = 0.5366GBP
