The official currency in Taiwan is the dollar - abbreviated to the currency code TWD. 1 Dollar is divided into 10 jiao which are then divided into a further 10 fen or cents.
The dollar, also referred to as the ‘New Taiwan dollar’, was introduced in 1949, when Taiwan replaced its Old Taiwan dollar. The new dollar’s initial role was to reduce the hyperinflation caused by the Chinese Civil War.
The dollar has been issued by the Central Bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan) since 2000; while the Bank of Taiwan issued banknotes prior to this time.
The most commonly-used bills for New Taiwan dollars are the 100, 500 and 1000 notes.

The service was seamless as usual. However the young lady that served us was working on her own and she was very busy. We had to wait 10 mins or so but the operator handled everything really well. I do think she should have had some help though.Maxine Margaret Baron
