It is divided into 100 cents.

It is normally written with the dollar sign $, or NZ$ to distinguish it from other dollar-denominated currencies. In the context of currency trading, it is often informally called the "Kiwi",<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> since New Zealand is commonly associated with the indigenous bird and the $1 coin depicts a kiwi. It is one of the 10 most-traded currencies in the world, being approximately 2.0% of global foreign exchange market daily turnover in 2013.<ref name="BIS2">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }} [pg.10 of PDF]</ref> (See Global Foreign Exchange Market section below.)
