Fiji is an island group in the South Pacific Ocean, about two-thirds of the way from Hawaii to New Zealand. It became independent in 1970, after nearly a century as a British colony. Democratic rule was interrupted by two military coups in 1987, caused by concern over a government perceived as dominated by the Indian community (descendants of contract laborers brought to the islands by the British in the 19th century). A 1990 constitution favored native Melanesian control of Fiji, but led to heavy Indian emigration; the population loss resulted in economic difficulties, but ensured that Melanesians became the majority. Amendments enacted in 1997 made the constitution more equitable. Free and peaceful elections in 1999 resulted in a government led by an Indo-Fijian, but a coup in May 2000 ushered in a prolonged period of political turmoil. Parliamentary elections held in August 2001 provided Fiji with a democratically elected government and gave a mandate to the government of Prime Minister Laisenia QARASE.

Fiji Coins
Fiji has issued its own coins since 1934 in sterling denominations, and decimalised in 1969 conveting to dollar and cent denominations.
We usually have in stock at least a few Fiji coins. The mintage figures tend to be quite low, although perhaps this is to expected with a population of under 1 million. In spite of the fact that Fiji has been a republic since a coup in 1987 which ousted Elizabeth II as Queen of Fiji, monarchist sentiment remains strong, and she remains the 'Paramount Chief of Fiji'. Consequently, the Queen's image still adorns the obverse of Fijian coins.
