About the currency

Coins and notes

What’s the most useless coin in circulation in Australia? Just to prove how in-with-the-times our Kiwi cousins are, they’ve already gone ahead and ditched the 5c piece. Otherwise, their coins are the same as ours – valued at 10c, 20c, 50c, $1 and $2. Their notes are going to look familiar too, at $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100.

Facts about the currency

  • Be warned: you’ll cop some hard-hitting and hard-to-understand 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).
  • If you slip a sneaky Australian coin in the mix with your New Zealand dollars, the nicer shopkeepers might not mind – but only if you’re really nice to them too.
