History of Australian Dollar

The Australian Dollar is the currency of Australia. It was called Australian Pound before 1966. Australian Pound was first introduced in 1910. Before that, English Pound or GBP was the official currency. Spanish Dollars were in use on regular basis in the latter part of the 17th century.  The centers of the coins were cut out and they were called ‘holey dollars’ and the cores were called ‘dumps’ to prevent the illegal use of Spanish Dollars. This is Australia’s first form of coinage. They minted British Coins in Australia in 1825 on the basis of Sterling Standard. The use of the silver and bronze coins continued until 1910.  The introduction of Australian Dollars in February 1966 under the decimalized system lead to the replacement of pounds, shilling, and pence with dollars and cents. In 1988, banknotes were converted to polymer, a technology originally developed in Australia to help prevent counterfeiting.

The Economy of Australia

Australia has enjoyed more than two decades of economic expansion due to the fact that it is one of the wealthiest Asia-Pacific nations. Its economy is heavily dependent on agriculture and foreign investment. However, Australian Economic Growth has grown by 3.4% in the year to June last year. The latest forecast states that year-end growth in 2018/19 will slow to around 2.5 % down from 3.4% to present.
