Coins and notes
The Australian dollar is made up of 100 cents. It comes in $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 dollar notes, as well as 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, $1 and $2 coins. The best thing about Australian banknotes? Since they’re made from a synthetic plastic material called polymer, you can accidently put them through the wash and they won’t fall apart (well, probably… we wouldn’t suggest trying this on purpose!).
