Did you know? NZD Currency Facts

  • In 1992, the image of Queen Elizabeth II was replaced on all but the $20 banknote. The new design featured notable New Zealanders - like Sir Edmund Hillary - and native New Zealand birds and scenery
  • Before the currency was named the dollar, names like "kiwi" and "zeal" were suggested. In the currency trading world, the NZD is commonly called the "kiwi" anyway
  • All coins still feature the image of the Queen on the front, but on the reverse are images of a bird, a ship, a Maori carving, a mountain and a silver fern
  • The 20c coin features the Maori carving image, which is that of an 18th century Maori warrior called Pukaki
  • As the 1c, 2c, and 5c coins have been discontinued, purchases made in NZ are rounded up or down as per the Swedish Rounding System
