Before money was introduced to Aotearoa everyone worked within their Hapu to grow, work and trade for what was needed in their community.  Then the Brits arrived and introduced “Special tokens” that were used at markets for trading goods and services, this is what we call money.  In this episode, Robbie looks at this “special token” system and what the rules are and how the government of New Zealand is involved.
