The Australian dollar is the currency of Australia, including Cocos Islands, Christmas Island, and Norfolk Island, as well as the independent Pacific Island states of Kiribati, Tuvalu and Nauru. The Australian dollar is currently the fifth-most-traded currency in the global foreign exchange markets. The currency is commonly referred to by foreign-exchange traders as ‘Aussie dollar‘.
1988 marked the first year where polymer banknotes were issued. All Australian dollar notes are now made of polymer.
Notes are sized according to their denomination, to assist those with visually impairment. They are the same height but of different lengths, in order of their value - $5 being the smallest, $100 the largest. Notes are also colour coded: $5 pink (there are two designs); $10 blue; $20 red; $50 yellow; and $100 green. Some of the most colourful travel money notes out there.
As a security feature, Australian dollar notes contain a transparent window with an optically variable image of Captain James Cook. There is a seven-pointed star which has only half the printing on each side on each note as well as an image of the Australian Coat of Arms only visible when held up to the light.
Prior to 1983 The Australian Dollar Exchange Rate was pegged against the British Pound from 1946 to 1971 after which it was pegged against the US Dollar under the Bretton Woods System (link this to investopedia link to bretton woods). Once this broke down, the Australian Dollar became a free floating currency.
