Description

In 1969, Fiji changed to a decimal currency. The currency structure was the 1c, 2c, 5c, 10c and 20c coins, and the $0.50, $1, $2, $5, $10, and $20 notes.

In October 2008, the issuance of 1 and 2 cents coins ceased. In February 2009, a new set of smaller size and lighter coins were introduced. The larger size coins of 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents as well as the 1 and 2 cents were demonetised in April 2009.

From 1969 to 1987, one cent coins were bronze and measured 17.5 mm, with a mass of 1.9 g.
From 1990 to 2005, one cent coins were copper-plated zinc and measured 17.53 mm, with a mass of 1.58 g.
The 2006 issue was copper-plated steel and measured 17.5 mm, with a mass of 1.76 g.
