A deep dive on Australian dollars

Up until 1910, Australia used the British pound as its currency, but this was phased out when the Australian pound 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.

More info on Australian dollars

The most commonly used bills in Australian dollars are the $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills.

Explore the exchange rate history of Aussie dollars against the US dollar, or head to our Travelex hub for top tips and insider guides to the nation.

The website was not working correctly when I first tried to reload my card and I had to spend time on the phone waiting to speak with a representative. After speaking with them I was told to wait for the website and was not even offered the option to reload over the phone. It ended up working later, so it wasn't a big deal.

Great

It was easy to use enjoyed using it getting pesos out of the ATM but unfortunately I was a little disappointed the fact that the ATMs kept on charging me a fee which I thought there wasn't going to be a fee but otherwise it was good to have.

Getting Foreign Currency through 2 day shipping to the house

I have used Travelex for my foreign currency for several years now. I had always gone to their local location for pick-up. This is the first time I have used the 2 day shipping to my home for $9.99. Since the website did not indicate when I ordered the currency when it would arrive two days later, I was pleasantly surprised that it arrived before 10am so I didn't have to wait all day at home for the delivery. Ordering was painless and the currency arrived correct. I will order currency in the future through their shipping option.
