The New Zealand Dollar $?
The New Zealand dollar (NZD) has been the official currency of New Zealamd since 1967 and is among the 10 most exchanged currencies in the world. As with other dollar systems, there are 100 cents to each dollar. The NZD is one of the easiest currencies to convert from Aussie dollars as the conversion rate normally sits pretty close to 1:1 and the price of most things is similar to in Australia.
The current denominations for NZD banknotes are the same as Australia $100, $50, $20, $10 and $5, although they have recently taken the 5 cent coin out of circulation meaning the only coins are $2, $1, .50, .20, .10 .
The New Zealand bank notes are notorious for being bright and eye catching, with each banknote being a different colour $5 (orange), $10 (blue), $20 (green), $50 (purple), $100 (red) and featuring a bird that is native to the country as well as a notable New Zealander except the $20 note which has a picture of Queen Elizabeth II as New Zealand is part of the commonwealth.
