TWD

The ISO 4217 currency code for the Taiwan Dollar.

TWD

ISO 4217 code for the new Taiwanese dollar. It was introduced in 1949, replacing the old dollar at a (somewhat staggering) ratio of 40,000 old dollars to one new dollar. Technically, it existed alongside the silver yuan, which was the official currency of the Republic of China (not to be confused with the People's Republic of China); however, the silver yuan was never actually used, and, in 2000, the Taiwanese dollar became the sole currency. It is a floating currency.
