The first Chatham Islands banknotes were issued in 1999, when the Reserve Bank of New Zealand authorized a private organization, the Chatham Islands Note Corporation, to issue banknotes to commemorate Chatham Islands being the first land to enter the third millennium.

The Chatham Islands Note Corporation issued 2 series of banknotes before it went out of existence in 2003. The Series I notes were printed in late 1999 in time for release on January 1, 2000 in denominations of $2, $3, $10 and $15. The Series II notes were printed some time during the year 2000 for release in 2001 in denominations of $3, $5, $8, $10 and $15.

These Chatham Islands notes were generally accepted by merchants on the Chatham Islands. The Chatham Islands dollar was pegged at the same rate as the New Zealand dollar.
