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.
A look back at Australian dollar to Fijian dollar rates
In June 2007, 1 Australian dollar was exchanging at a rate of 1.34 Fijian dollars, falling sharply in October of 2008 to 1.10. The Fijian dollar recovered quickly, reaching 1.62 by May 2009 and 1.95 Fijian dollars to the Australian dollar by October of 2011. As of May 2017, it has remained relatively steady over the last few months, at a rate of 1.55 FJK to 1 AUD.
In October 2008, the Singapore dollar fell dramatically against the Aussie dollar, from 1.31 in July 2008 to 0.929. A year later in October 2009, it was back up to 1.29 and has been steadily declining ever since, and sits at a rate of 1.04 to 1 AUD as of May 2017.
