Coins and notes
Francs are fairly well distributed, with the coins offering values of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 francs a piece.
The notes cover 500, 1,000, 5,000 and 10,000 francs. Who knew Franc was so versatile?
Facts about the currency
- The CFP franc was founded when the French franc was retired following WWII.
- Every XPF banknote shows a landscape or historical figure from French Polynesia on one side, and New Caledonia on the other, so every note is like your own little postcard.
- Some tourist businesses will accept Australian and New Zealand currencies, but watch out, their exchange rates might not be as friendly as old Franc!
- The CFP franc was used in 3 different forms across New Hebrides, French Polynesia and New Caledonia right up to 1985, until a little common sense kicked in.
