A History of the Australian Dollar

The Australian dollar replaced the Australian pound in February 1966 after pounds, shillings and pence were replaced by decimal currency. This preceded Australia leaving the sterling area completely in 1967.

Now, half a century later, the Australian dollar is one of the most traded currencies in the world, so you can transfer money to Australia with ease.

The Australian dollar is also the currency of the Commonwealth of Australia, which includes Christmas Island, Cocos (Keeling) Islands and Norfolk Island, as well as the independent island states of Kiribati, Nauru and Tuvalu.
