g) Antartica

Antartica currency ISOs

Antarctica is a unique case when it comes to currencies because it is not a country but a continent mostly covered by ice and without a permanent population.

It hosts scientists and researchers from around the world on a temporary basis, stationed at various research facilities and bases from different countries.

Each country operating a research station in Antarctica typically uses its own currency for transactions within its own base.

Therefore, there is no single currency used across the continent. The currencies in use would depend on the nationality of each research station.

For example:

  • The United States operates McMurdo Station and Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, where transactions would likely be in U.S. dollars (USD).
  • New Zealand operates Scott Base, with transactions likely in New Zealand dollars (NZD).

Research stations operated by European countries might use the Euro (EUR) or their national currencies for their bases.

Transactions in Antarctica are minimal and mostly confined to purchasing souvenirs or small items at some of the bases that offer them to visitors or personnel.

Most supplies and living essentials are provided by the respective countries and included in the operations of each research mission.

Antarctica is governed by the Antarctic Treaty System, which sets aside the continent as a scientific preserve and bans military activity, but it does not establish any territorial sovereignty or currency system.
