NFD

ISO 4217 code for the Newfoundland dollar, which was the currency of Newfoundland between 1865 and 1949. Initially, the dollar was on a gold standard and was worth slightly more than the Canadian dollar. In 1895, however, it was pegged to the Canadian dollar following a banking crisis in Newfoundland. When Newfoundland joined Canada, its dollar was replaced by the Canadian dollar.
