XPF: the franc of the Pacific

Similar to the CFA, the franc of the Pacific has been listed as the sole currency since 2002. Therefore, it benefits from the same effects (or not).

You can find the CFP France in the French Overseas Collectivities (formerly known as the TOM, or Overseas Territories), including New Caledonia, French Polynesia and Wallis and Futuna. Coins are specific to the territory where they are circulated. On Polynesian coins, you can find references to Polynesian flora and coastal landscapes. As for the New Caledonian coins, images of the local fauna can be found.

However, banknotes are common to all the various collectivities. On the front, you can find references to Polynesia: typical Polynesian landscapes and figureheads. On the back, references are to New Caledonia. The 500-CFP franc banknote represents a fisherman with a coastal landscape in the background. The 1000-france banknote features a typical village, the 5000-franc banknote has the French navigators who discovered each of the islands, and the 10,000-franc banknote has the profiles of a Polynesian woman decorated with flowers on the front, and a Kanak woman on the back.
