The official currency of New Caledonia is the CFP franc - abbreviated to XPF. The currency is referred to as ‘franc’ in everyday use and is used in the French overseas collectives of French Polynesia, New Caledonia and Wallis and Futuna.
CFP stands for ‘Change Franc Pacifique’ (Pacific Franc Exchange) and was introduced in 1945 along with the CFA franc used in certain parts of Africa. The Institut d’émission d’Outre-Mer (IEOM) is responsible for issuing the CFP franc.
The most commonly-used bills are the 500, 1000, 5000 and 10000 notes; while coins are used for denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 francs.

Great way to get currency for overseas travel
Great way to get currency for overseas travel. Excellent service. My only criticism is that I booked a day for the money to be delivered to my home and it came on a completely different day when I wasn’t home. Also, my name was incorrect which made it difficult for me to pick it up from the Post Office. I was very surprised at this as I had to provide heaps of information to verify my identity.Arnold

I could not find anywhere on your site to do more than 1 transaction - different currency denominations.
I could not find anywhere on your site which enabled me to do several transactions at once. I was told when I picked up the money today I could have completed the 3 transactions in one. This is how I know it was possible. That's the reason for the 4 stars. Otherwise it would have been excellent as I found it easy and a great idea. Like I said the web site wasn't clear and I know friends also travelling did more than one transaction too. Thankyou BeatriceBeatrice May Peterson

I am not a regular overseas traveller so chose Travelex to purchase my OS currency due to the trust I feel for the brand name. The purchase on the web site was easy, only did the purchase yesterday so have not received funds yet.Kerry Disney
