Heading to Hong Kong for a holiday? Pack your walking shoes, prepare your taste buds, exchange some New Zealand Dollars to Hong Kong Dollars, and prepare for the trip of a lifetime.

Take the tram to the top of Victoria Peak and enjoy stunning views. Meet the Big Buddha on Lantau Island. Then, as the sun sets on this glorious city, immerse yourself in the sights (and the smells!) of the Temple Street Night Market, sing your heart out with some karaoke, or tap your toes to some tango music. The options are endless in this colourful metropolis – and the Hong Kong dollar (or the ‘honkie’ as some Western expats call it) is the key you need to unlock it all.  

If you’re planning a detour through the neighbouring region of Macau, good news: the Hong Kong dollar is also commonly accepted here (along with the Macanese pataca). You’ll need some yuan if you’re headed elsewhere in China, though.

Coins and notes

Just like other dollars, the Hong Kong dollar ($) is divided into 100 cents (c) or 100 sin (in Cantonese). Coins come in 10c, 20c, 50c, $1, $2, $5 and $10 varieties, while Hong Kong banknotes can be found in $10, $20, $50, $100, $150, $500 and $1,000 denominations. Hong Kong also has a special term, hou, for a dime (10 cents).

Facts about the currency

  • The Hong Kong dollar was unified as legal tender in 1937.
  • The HKD is the 13th most traded currency in the world, despite only being used in Hong Kong and Macau.
  • Together with South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan, Hong Kong is part of the ‘4 Asian Tigers’ – known for their fierce and rapidly grown economies.
  • HKD coins started gradually replacing the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II with a depiction of a Bauhinia flower in 1993, four years prior to the end of British rule in Hong Kong. So they just went from one beauty to another, really.
  • Alongside English and Chinese text, Honk Kong banknotes also feature Arabic numerals.
