Day 238: Aussie Coins

Word of warning: When you visit Australia your pockets will be heavy from carrying all the damn coins they have.
Back home we have:
  1. Penny
  2. Nickle
  3. Dime
  4. Quarter
    We also have the 50 cent coin and the dollar coin but it’s rarely seen or used
In Australia:
  1. 5 cent piece
  2. 10 cent piece
  3. 20 cent piece
  4. 50 cent piece
  5. Dollar gold coin
  6. 2 Dollar gold coin
    Aussies don’t have pennies. They either round up or down.

You’ll end up with 20 coins in your pocket on a regular day out, it’s crazy lol.

Anyway — we figure we tell you this so you know to bring a nice big coin purse when you visit.
