Modern Taiwainese coins were first introduced into circulation in 1949 as the New Taiwan Dollar, generally called yuan (元). 1 yuan = 10 jiao. In English, monetary amounts are usually written with the familiar dollar sign — 5 yuan would be $5, or NWT$5.
Although currently there are no jiao coins in Taiwan, there were in the past, and these can be fun collectibles for Taiwan coin enthusiasts. There is, however, a 1/2元 coin, which is in effect a 5 jiao coin.
Besides the half-yuan coin, other Taiwanese coins currently in circulation are $1, $5, $10, $20 (seldom used), and $50.
There are, of course, several commemorative coins aimed at international collectors. These proof coins are the focus of many Taiwan coin buyers.
