Size of coin[edit]

I removed the following comment:

The hundred vatu coin is similar in shape and size to the Australian and New Zealand dollar coins.

I don't like removing things without making them better, but this comment doesn't make any sense: the Australian and New Zealand dollar coins are quite different sizes. I hope someone can clear this up, because it would be useful encyclopedic information. Ben Arnold 00:50, 23 Nov 2004 (UTC) As it stood, the assertion probably wasn't justified, but I hope that it is better supported now. the sizes are

AUD 1 - 25mm ; AUD 2 - 20.5mm

NZD 1 - 23mm ; NZD 2 - 26.5mm

VUV 100 - 23mm

I would argue that the $1 coins are similar in size both to each other and to the 100 vatu. There are obvious and stark differences between the $2 coins. Ringbark 08:01, 26 Nov 2004 (UTC) 08:00Z 26 November 2004

I'd like to thank you and the other Wikipedians for the efficiency and speed with which this article was transformed from an initial idea to a useful resource. Ringbark 08:01, 26 Nov 2004 (UTC) 08:00Z 26 November 2004


Local residents sometimes refer to a notional dollar, equal to 100 vatu, without specifying which country's currency they have in mind - has there ever been any talk of officially introducing a "Vanuatu Dollar" with the vatu as a subdivision? Nik42 06:32, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

100 vatu note[edit]

I've noticed that it is stated that there is a V100 note and a coin. I know sometimes countries have a note and a coin for the same denomination, but is this the case, or are V100 notes actually replaced with the coin? Tarcus 22:40, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

I believed the notes were replaced by the coin. Enlil Ninlil 08:00, 21 October 2007 (UTC)
