KIWI /’ki:wi:/

  • a flightless bird
  • an egg-sized fruit

but also….

The New Zealand dollar (sign: $; code: NZD) – the currency of New Zealand. In the context of currency trading, it is often informally called the “Kiwi”, since kiwi are commonly associated with New Zealand and the $1 coin depicts a kiwi.

If you hear: ‘The Kiwi is up this morning vs. the Dollar and Yen’ you know it does not refer to the flightless bird.

Informally, it may also be used to refer to a New Zealander.
