In the early days of Australia’s inception, the local currency was the Great British Pound (Sterling) due to the country’s previous inhabitants and affiliation with Great Britain. However, this all changed in 1910, when a new national currency, the Australian Pound was introduced. In February 1966, Pounds, Shillings, and Pennies were replaced with Dollars, and Cents.
When coming over from Australia to the United States, the currency transition should be as seamless as possible, with both currencies sharing the same dollar ($) and Cents (c) symbols. Similar to the U.S., the Australian dollar is also referred to by nickname as a Buck.
The “Aussie Dollar” is the 5th most traded currency in the world, and boasts a multitude of special edition notes and coins that were made to pay homage to certain events within the nation, with the most notable being ‘The Commonwealth Games’ in 1982 and the 40th Anniversary of the Sydney Opera House. The most commonly used Australian Coins are $2, $1, 50 cents, 20 cents, 10 cents, and 5 cents. The most frequently used Australian Banknotes are $100, $50, $20, $10, and $5.
Australia’s Central Bank is the Reserve Bank of Australia.
