The Tongan Pa'anga (TOP) is the official currency of Tonga. It is the legal tender used for all transactions within the country.


The Pa'anga was first introduced in 1967, replacing the Tongan Pound, after Tonga's currency reform to decimalize its monetary system.

Tonga is a constitutional monarchy and has been one of the few countries in the South Pacific region to maintain its independence throughout its history.
