Vanuatu is the new name for the New Hebrides, a group of small islands east of Australia, discovered by Portuguese navigator Pedro de Quiros in 1606, and named New Hebrides in 1774 by Captain James Cook. The islands were much visited for their sandalwood, and rather unusually, the British and French each relinquished their claims to firstly declare the zone as neutral, and later as a joint Anglo-French dominion (condominium). Vanuatu became independent in 1980 and remains a member of the British Commonwealth.

Vanuatu Coins
Until 1983, coins of the New Hebrides were denominated in francs due to its strong French influence, but when Vanuatu started to issue coins in its own new name in 1983, these have been in Vatu.
