The ISO 4217 standard came to encode all the world’s currencies and the ISO code for the New Zealand dollar NZD, mention being made with the first two letters to New Zealand, and the last letter to his motto the New Zealand dollar .
Really simplified ISO 4217 transactions worldwide, by encoding the name of the coins simply three letters.

Thus the ISO 4217 standard came to remove uncertainty in business transactions, because if we talk about we mention only the NZD New Zealand dollar and another currency, just imagine a two dealers in New Zealand and one in the U.S. and both agreed to pay one dollar of goods sold.
