A deep dive on Australian dollars
Originally, Australia used the British pound but this was phased out in 1910 when the Australian pound came into circulation. In 1956, the Australian dollar was introduced and in 1988 Australia switch to polymer bills similar to those now used in Canada and other countries. The Australian dollar is now the 5th most traded currency in the world.
