Some common questions

  • One of the most diverse countries in the world, New Zealand has everything from snow-capped mountains to golden sand beaches. It’s divided into two islands, simply known as North and South.

    Take in all of the South Island on the TranzAlpine train, which goes through farmland, mountains and rainforests. On the North Island, the modern cities of Auckland and Wellington await. Museums, cafés and inner-city nature reserves are the main attractions.

  • The New Zealand dollar (NZD) is the official currency of New Zealand and its territories the Cook Islands, Niue, the Pitcairn islands, Ross Dependency and Tokelau. Its currency symbol is $ or NZ$.

    One NZ$ is subdivided into 100 cents.

  • Notes: 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollars

    Coins: 1 and 2 dollars, 10, 20 and 50 cents

    Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to reach the peak of Mount Everest, is on the 5-dollar bill.

  • New Zealand and its territories are the only official users of the New Zealand dollar. But the currency is also used unofficially in Fiji, New Caledonia, Samoa, Tonga and Vanuatu.

  • You can order your New Zealand dollars at the Post Office. Buy currency online or order travel money in thousands of branches. Use our branch finder to locate your nearest branch that sells currency.

    Order online by 3pm to collect in any of our 11,500 branches the next working day with our click and collect service. We can also deliver currency to your home.

    Ordering currency online could get you a better exchange rate than buying in branch. However you buy, it’s worth doing it when the exchange rate is good (with the pound strong against the dollar) if you can. And buying larger amounts at one time can reduce the rate further.

    If you prefer to pay with plastic abroad, our Travel Money Card is a prepaid Mastercard® you can load with up to 22 currencies, including the New Zealand dollar.

  • The highest New Zealand banknote is the 100 dollar note. The lowest denomination in the currency is the 10 cent coin, which isn’t used very often either. It’s possible to encounter 1, 2 or 5 cent coins too, but these are no longer officially in use.
