The Azoro dollar(Spanish:Azor dólar Code:AZD sign:A$) is the official currency of the Azoro. It also circulate in the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, South Okerny Islands, Norfolk Island, and Tonga. As of 2006, the Azoro dollar is the 4th most traded and reserved currency in the world. It is abbreviated with the dollar sign $, or A$ to distinguish it from other dollar-denominated currencies. It is divided into 100 cents.
After Azoro was independent, the 6 divisions that made up the country made their own currency. It made travelling difficult with having to exchange currency when crossing into diffrent states. So the government steped in and said that there world be one currency. People were upset because they hated the government. They made the first edition of Azoro Dollars(ehich look like Old Canadian Dollars). The first edition, made in 1985, had $1, $2, 5$, $10, and $20 bills. The $50 banknote was made in 1992 and the $100, $200, $500, and $1,000 banknote were made in 2002.
