NAD (Namibian Dollar)

The currency abbreviation for the Namibian dollar (NAD), the currency for Namibia. The Namibian dollar is made up of 100 cents and is often presented with the symbol $ or N$ to set it apart from other dollar-denominated currencies.

The Namibian dollar replaced the South African rand in 1993, three years after Namibia gained its independence from South Africa. Because the dollar is pegged to the rand at par, the rand is still legal tender in Namibia, and both currencies circulate alongside each other in the nation.
