The Australian dollar is the official currency in Australia, subdivided into 100 cents.
Origins and history
The first Australian banknotes were printed more than a century ago, but there was currency in the country much earlier.
The discovery of gold in the country in 1851 led to the coinage of gold coins, stimulating the development of the banking system. Commercial banks issued their own banknotes, backed by gold, although people did not completely trust them, especially after several banks filing for bankruptcy in 1893.
Current Australian dollar coins and banknotes
