The New Zealand Dollar came into existence in 1967 after the country shifted away from the New Zealand Pound. The New Zealand Dollar was initially pegged to the US Dollar at a rate of one New Zealand Dollar equaling $1.6200 US Dollars, although the peg was changed later in the year of introduction to $1.12 US Dollars for each New Zealand Dollar. This peg was managed and changed up until 1985 in which The New Zealand Dollar was set to free-float.


Monetary Policy for the economy and the New Zealand Dollar is controlled by The Reserve Bank of New Zealand. The bank embarked on intervention efforts in June of 2007 for the first time since the currency was allowed to free-float, largely in an effort to drive the value of NZD lower.


These efforts were largely seen as ineffective as The New Zealand Dollar moved to new post-float highs of .8103 shortly thereafter. However, after printing a new high in early 2008, the Financial Collapse sparked a massive move in the currency that eventually saw the New Zealand Dollar trading below .50 against the US Dollar.


After bottoming below .50 against the US Dollar in March of 2009, the currency embarked on a massive move, gaining more than 75% against the US Dollar over the next two-and-one-half years, creating more calls within government for additional easing.
