NZD – New Zealand dollar

The New Zealand dollar (symbol: $; currency code: NZD) is the official currency of the Realm of New Zealand and of the Pitcairn Islands. It is sometimes abbreviated as NZ$ to distinguish between it and other dollar-denominated currencies. One (1) dollar is equal to one hundred (100) cents.

The New Zealand dollar is among the ten most heavily traded currencies worldwide. It is frequently referred to by traders as the “kiwi” due to the association between New Zealand and the indigenous bird, which is also depicted on the one-dollar coin.

Background
Prior to 1798, approximately 860 different coins were in circulation in Switzerland. The Helvetic Republic introduced a currency based on the Berne thaler in 1798, which lasted until the end of the Helvetic Republic in 1803. The franc was introduced as the monetary unit of Switzerland following the first Federal Coinage Act in 1850 and replaced the different currencies of the Swiss cantons.
