About the currency
Coins and notes
Unlike our dollar, there are no cents in Taiwan. Coins over here are worth $1, $5, $10 and $50, with notes going up through $100, $500 and $1,000.
Facts about the currency
- Make sure to declare your cash if you’re bringing over TWD 60,000 or USD 10,000 in or out of Taiwan.
- The Taiwanese Dollar was born in June 1949, just like Lionel Richie. (The similarities probably end there, though.)
- The design of the $200 note was controversial to say the least, with accusations made that Chiang Kai-shek was chosen to feature in the design of a very infrequently used denomination purely so he would later be removed from circulation.
