Currency Information on Australian Dollar - AUD — Australian Dollar - $
The Australian dollar symbol is sometimes prefaced with an A (A$) to differentiate it from other dollar currencies. One Australian dollar is comprised of 100 cents, but only 1 and two dollars can be found as coins singularly. The other subdivisions are notes in the form of $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 and 5, 10, 20, 50 cent coins.
The obverse of all Australian coins are depicted with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of Australia. 1 and 2 cent coins were minted and in circulation from 1964 until they were demonetarised in 1992 along with the 2 cent coin both of which were made of bronze. Despite being referred to as silver, the majority of Australia's coins are made predominantly of copper.
Given the current crisis in my country, I was forced to move abroad to find a better financial life. I’ve been living and working in a good UK job for two years now. Although my wife and children came with me I send money to my relatives in Greece very often. Every time I do so I make sure I'm getting a good currency exchange deal by checking online how to send money abroad at the best rates.
