Tonga is an archipelago of islands in the South Pacific Ocean, about two-thirds of the way from Hawaii to New Zealand. "The Friendly Islands" were united into a Polynesian kingdom in 1845. It became a constitutional monarchy in 1875 and a British protectorate in 1900. Tonga acquired its independence in 1970 and became a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. It remains the only monarchy in the Pacific.

Tongan Coins
Tonga only started to issue its own coins in 1962 denominated in pounds, but with 16 koulas to the pound, and in 1967 it decimalised. There are now 100 senti = 1 Pa'Anga, and 100 Pa'anga = 1 Hau, therefore 10,000 senti = 1 Hau.
In 1967, Tonga achieved a world's first by issuing the first ever palladium coins for the coronation of King Taufa Ahau Tupou IV.
