The lowdown on the Fijian dollar
Fiji has had the Fijian dollar as its currency since the heady days of 1969 – but it was also the currency for a little while between 1867 and 1873.
When the dollar was reintroduced on 15 January 1969, it replaced the Fijian pound at a rate of 1 Fijian pound to 2 Fijian dollars. Even though Fiji has been a republic since way back in 1987, its coins and banknotes still featured Queen Elizabeth II right up until 2013. These days, they feature images of plants and animals instead. Very tropical.
