WALKING FOR A BETTER WORLD
Coins and Currency - 11/13/2003
I'll Be Making This Speech
Where Was I?
I have been meaning to mention
Australia's coins and currency
it is so different from the U.S. The 5 cent coin is the smallest
denon\mination, it is almost the exact size of a Lincoln penny. The
10 cent piece is just a hair smaller than a Washington quarter. a 20
cent piece is next and it is larger than a Washington quarter. Next
is a 50 cent piece which has 12 sides and is probably the size of a
Kennedy half dollar. Next you have a gold colored one dollar coin a
hair larger than a Washington quarter. There is also a 2 dollar coin
which I don't have at the moment but it is smaller than the one
Currency is very colorful and varies in size, as well as, dollar amount. Also each bill has a small design cut out and a piece of clear plastic with something on it, which must make it hard to counterfiet. I have a 5 and 50 dollar bill on me but have seen 10's, 20's, I think they also have a 100 hundred, as well as, a 500 dollar bill.
