The country of New Zealand is located in the Southwestern Pacific. The country consists of over 600 separate islands as well as two primary land masses known as the North Island and the South Island. The country is a not-too-distant neighbor of Australia, and is situated some 900 miles east of Australia across the Tasman Sea. The country features a great deal of biodiversity, as it was one of the last places to be settled by humans. Due to volcanic activity and tectonic uplift, the country has a unique topography. The capital city of New Zealand is Wellington, although its most populous city is Auckland. English is the primary language spoken in the country, and its government is a unitary parliamentary constitutional republic.
The official currency of New Zealand is the New Zealand Dollar. The currency is often referred to as the kiwi, nicknamed so for the indigenous bird that has become an iconic symbol of the country. In addition to the mainland, the kiwi is also legal tender for the Cook Islands, the Ross Dependency, Tokelau, Niue and the Pitcairn Islands.
The kiwi was introduced in 1967, and like other major global currencies can be subdivided into 100 smaller units of currency called cents. The New Zealand Dollar is one of the most widely traded currencies in the world.
The New Zealand Dollar is issued and controlled by the country’s central bank, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. Established in 1934, the central bank has several other key duties in addition to management of the currency. Some of these tasks include conducting monetary policy and oversight of the country’s banking system.
