Australian History

Monday, March 26, 1984. :   Australia introduces the $100 note.

     Decimal currency was first introduced in Australia on 14 February 1966. The new Australian dollar replaced the Australian pound as the nominal currency of Australia (different to the Pound Sterling), and introduced a decimal system. Initially, the Australian dollar was introduced at a rate of two dollars per pound, or ten shillings per dollar. The Australian dollar, AUD or A$, is the official currency of the Commonwealth of Australia, including the Australian Antarctic Territory, Christmas Island, Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Heard Island and McDonald Islands and Norfolk Island, as well as the independent Pacific island states of Kiribati, Nauru and Tuvalu.

The introduction of decimal currency saw the first banknotes of $1, $2, $5, $10 and $20. The $50 was first issued in 1973, and on 26 March 1984, the first $100 note was issued.
