Up until 1910, Australia used the British pound as its currency, but this was phased out when the Australian dollar came into circulation.
Finally in 1956, the Australian dollar was born! Since 1988, Australia has been using plastic looking polymer bills, making them a lot harder to tear or lose to the laundry wash. The Australian dollar is now the 5th most traded currency in the world.
The most commonly used bills in Australian dollars are the $5, $10, $20 and $50 bills.
