The Queen and Sixpence
This is not hot news really as the money won't be in circulation for quite some time, but there will be new coins and notes for Fiji money coming up. And the Queen's portrait will go or as they say 'orf with 'er 'ead'! One overseas newspaper from India declares that the reason is to do with the Commonwealth's displeasure about Fiji these days, but of course Fiji has been a republic for some time now. The new designs sound innocuous enough and non-political, plants and animals. Some of the earlier Fiji notes and coins were much more interesting. Here's a few of them.
