The history of banknotes in New Zealand was much more complex. In 1840, the Union Bank of Australia began issuing banknotes under British law, but these were not automatically legal tender. Banknotes are not legal tender in Scotland.  Scottish banknotes are legal tender but are not legal tender anywhere in the United Kingdom.  In some jurisdictions, contract law may take precedence over legal tender, allowing merchants, for example, to specify that they do not accept cash payments.  Coins and banknotes are generally defined as legal tender in many countries, but personal cheques, credit cards and similar cashless payment methods are not. Some jurisdictions may include a particular foreign currency as legal tender, sometimes as exclusive legal tender, or at the same time as their local currency. Some jurisdictions may prohibit or restrict payments from non-legal tender. [ref. needed] In some jurisdictions, legal tender may be rejected as payment if there is no debt before the time of payment (the obligation to pay may arise at the same time as the offer to pay).
For example, vending machines and transport personnel are not required to accept the highest face value of the ticket. Merchants can refuse large banknotes, which falls under the legal concept of invitation to treatment. [clarification needed] Maundy currency is legal tender but may not be accepted by retailers and is worth much more than its face value due to its rare value and silver content. Some currencies, such as the US dollar and the euro, are used as legal tender in countries that do not issue their own currency or have found the stable dollar preferable to their own currency. For example, Ecuador has taken control of the United States. The dollar as legal tender in 2000, after Ecuador`s currency, sugar, devalued rapidly, so that $1 was worth 25,000 sugars. The introduction of the U.S. dollar as the primary legal tender is colloquially referred to as “dollarization,” although this practice is commonly referred to as currency substitution. According to monetary law, there are limits to the value of a transaction for which only coins are used.  A payment in coins is legal tender for a maximum of the following amounts for the following denominations: SUBMISSION, contracts, pleadings. An offer is an offer to take or take an action that the party to whom the offer is addressed is required to perform.
(2) An offer can be money or specific items; These are taken into account separately. Paragraph 1. From the usurer. To make a valid offer, the following conditions are required: 1. It must be made by a solvent person: because if it is made by a foreigner without the consent of the debtor, it will not be enough. Cro. Eliz. 48, 132; 2 M. and p. 86; Co. Lit. 206.

And an offer was made by means of a cheque contained in a letter requesting an acknowledgement of receipt, which the applicant returned and demanded a higher amount, without contesting the nature of the offer. 8 D.

5.-4. If a time limit has been agreed in favour of a creditor, it must have expired; The offer must be submitted at the agreed time for the performance of the contract, if it is submitted subsequently, it is only to mitigate damages, provided that it is submitted before the filing of the action. 7 taunts. 487; 8 East, r. 168; 5 taunts. 240; 1 Saund. 33 A, note 2. The tender must be made before the daylight has completely disappeared. 7 Greenl. 31.
6.-5. The condition under which the debt was contracted must be met. 7.-6. The offer is made at the place agreed for payment or, failing that, to the creditor or his representative. 8 John. 474; Lit. Bl. 132; Ferry.
From. H.T. v. 8. If an offer has been made in due form, it is a full defence to the claim, but the benefit of an offer is lost if the creditor subsequently demands the amount owed from the debtor and the debtor refuses to pay it. Kirby, 293. 9.-Abs. 2. The invitation to tender certain items. It is a rule that certain objects can be offered at a certain place and not, like money, to the person of the creditor, wherever they are.
If no place is expressly mentioned in the contract, the place of delivery must be determined by the will of the parties, which can be deduced from the nature of the business and its circumstances. For example, if the contract provides for the delivery of goods from the seller to the buyer on demand, the first being the manufacturer of the goods or a trader in them, without specifying a specific place, the seller`s factory or store is considered to be the intended place and an offer is sufficient there. If the specific items are located elsewhere at the time of sale, this is the place of delivery. 2 Green. Ev. § 609 4 Wend. 377; 2 applets. 325. 10.
If the goods are cumbersome and the place of delivery is not determined or can be inferred from the circumstances, it is presumed that they were intended to be delivered to a place that the creditor could reasonably determine; If the creditor refuses or designates an inappropriate location, the debtor may choose a suitable location and, after notifying the creditor, deliver the goods to it. 2 Kent, comm. 507; 1 green. 120; Flea. on Contr. 51 13 Wend. 95; 2 Green. Ev. § 610.

The governments issuing the coins must establish the euro as the sole legal tender. Due to the different legal meanings of the term `legal tender` in different Member States and the possibility for contract law to prevail over legal tender, it is possible for traders to refuse to accept euro banknotes and coins in certain euro area countries (the Netherlands, Germany, Finland and Ireland).  National legislation may also impose restrictions on the maximum amounts that can be paid per coin or banknote. The Norwegian krone (NOK) is legal tender in Norway according to the Central Bank (Norwegian: Sentralbankloven) of 24 May 1985.  However, no one is obliged to accept more than 25 coins of each denomination (of which 1, 5, 10 and 20 NOK denominations are currently in circulation). Euro banknotes and coins will become legal tender in most euro area countries on 1 January 2002.
Although one side of the coins is used for different national marks for each country, all banknotes and coins are legal tender throughout the euro area. Although some euro area countries do not put 1 cent and 2 cent coins into general circulation (prices in these countries are generally considered to be rounded to a full multiple of 5 cents), 1 cent and 2 cent coins from other euro area countries are still legal tender in these countries. The popularity of cross-border and online shopping is increasing the demand for more forms of money, such as popular cryptocurrency alternatives such as Bitcoin, which are recognized as legal tender.
