The US dollar is the official currency of the United States of America, along with a few other countries and regions outside the USA, including:
So if you’re hitting up the US of A or one of these places on your next vacation, you’re going to need some United States currency to get you through your travels (room service, anyone?).
The US dollar ($) is subdivided into 100 cents (c). Commonly used coins include 1c (penny), 5c (nickel), 10c (dime), and $¼ (quarter), and rarely used coins include $½ and $1 (so you can just forget about those silly ones unless you’re a coin collector).
Banknotes include $1, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100, as well as the less frequently used $2 (another variation that’s about as useful as a screen door on a submarine).
The historical rates chart tells you how the US dollar has trended against the Australian dollar recently. If you're interested in factors that influence the exchange rate, you can learn more by reading our Traveller's Guide to USD Forecasting.
