Coins & Notes

Australia used to have pounds, shillings and pence like Britain, but in 1966 we changed over to dollars and cents. You can see the coins on the right. We have a 5, 10, 20 and 50 cent coin.


You can see the notes on the left. We have a 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollar note. The notes are different colours and sizes.

How do we talk about money? How would you say $2.60?

$3.55 = three dollars and fifty-five cents OR three dollars fifty-five OR three fifty-five
