New Zealand to Keep its Currency


Now, it doesn’t look like that will happen, and anybody on New Zealand tours in the future will still get to enjoy spending New Zealand dollars and using the country’s own currency, rather than having to share one with Australia. It might seem like a small thing, but a country’s own currency is a great way to make a holiday really feel like a holiday, and finding a few leftover coins afterwards is a pleasant reminder of your trip. It should also be good news for New Zealand’s economy as it won’t be governed by the same changes that affect Australia’s, which might be bad news as Australia’s is seven times larger. With so many unique landscapes and things to see, New Zealand keeping its own currency is definitely a nice touch. Image Credit: kalleboo (flickr.com)
