Encyclopedia > Samoan tala

The tala is the currency of Samoa. It is divided into 100 sene. The names are Samoan equivalents of the English dollar and cent.


The tala was introduced in 1967. Until that time, Samoa had used the New Zealand pound, with coins from New Zealand and its own banknotes. The tala replaced the pound at a rate of 2 tala = 1 pound, and was therefore equal to the New Zealand dollar. The tala remained equal to the New Zealand dollar until 1975. The New Zealand pound was the legal tender currency of New Zealand prior to decimalization in 1967. ... A New Zealand $100 polymer banknote, replacement of the old paper notes. ...
