Coins and notes
Farewell, 5c piece, you're not needed. Otherwise, the New Zealand coins are the same as Australian coins – valued at 10c, 20c, 50c, $1 and $2. Notes are valued at $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100.
Facts about the currency
- Be warned: you’ll cop some hard-hitting questions at the airport if you try entering with more than NZD $10,000 in cash, so make sure you fill out a Border Cash report if you need more than that.
- The ‘kiwi’ was one of the proposed names for the kiwi currency, which sadly wasn’t selected – but that hasn’t stopped traders from calling it the ‘kiwi’ anyway.
- The Kiwis have some amazing laws stopping people from going nuts paying for things with coins – you can’t use any more than $5 worth of coins individually worth less than $1 – so no paying for a movie ticket with 10c pieces (you’d miss your movie anyway).
