New Zealand Dollar

The currency of New Zealand. It was introduced in 1967, replacing the New Zealand pound. It was initially pegged to gold through the U.S. dollar. After the end of the Bretton Woods system, it remained pegged to gold, then later to a currency basket. It has been a floating currency since 1985.
