The lowdown on the Fijian dollar
Economical Influences and the Fijian Dollar
Fijian dollars have been the official currency of Fiji since 1969; however, it was also the currency for a short time between 1867 and 1873.
When the FJD was reintroduced on 15 January 1969, it replaced the Fijian pound at a rate of 1 Fijian pound to 2 Fijian dollars. Even though Fiji has been a republic since 1987, its coins and banknotes still featured Queen Elizabeth II right up until 2013. These days, the currency features characteristics native to Fiji such as specific plant and wildlife.
