The Fijian dollar is the official currency of Fiji. The official currency symbol: FJ$ or FJD.
The Fijian dollar was established in two periods, the first one between 1867 and 1873, when the Government Treasury introduced notes in denominations of 12½¢, 25¢, 50¢, 100¢ and $1, $5, $10, $25, and $50. The second Fijian dollar was introduced in 1969, replacing the Fijian pound. The government introduced notes in denominations of 50 cents, $1, $2, $10, and $20, followed by the $5 note in 1970.
In 1974, the Central Monetary Authority was assigned as the sole entity in charge of issuing paper money, which issued the same denominations, except the 50 cent bill replaced by coins in 1975. Almost ten years later, the Reserve Bank of Fiji began issuing banknotes, replacing the $ 1 coin bill in 1995 and introducing the $ 50 bill the following year. In 2007 the $ 100 bill was introduced. Since 2017, the bills that are in circulation are in denominations of $ 5, $ 10, $ 20, $ 50, and $ 100.
