The Australian dollar (symbol: $; currency code: AUD) is the official currency of the Commonwealth of Australia, including Christmas Island, Cocos Islands, and Norfolk Island, and several independent Pacific Island states. To distinguish between it and other dollar-denominated currencies, the Australian dollar sometimes appears as A$. One (1) Australian dollar is equal to one hundred (100) cents.
The Australian dollar is often referred to by traders as the “Aussie dollar”. It is the fifth most traded currency in the forex market, behind the U.S. dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen and the British pound. Its popularity in foreign exchange is largely due to the relative stability of the country’s economy and the relatively high interest rates in Australia.
The Australian dollar was preceded by the Australian pound, which was introduced in 1910 and differed in value from the pound sterling. The dollar was introduced on February 14, 1966.

One (1) euro is equal to one hundred (100) euro cents.
