••• Australia image by Stefano Maccari from

Australia and its commonwealth uses the Australia or Aussie dollar (AUD) as its standard currency. The Aussie dollar comes in both coins and banknotes going up to $100 Aussie. Like all traded currencies, the exchange rates between AUD and U.S. dollars (USD) change daily. Converting between Aussie dollars and U.S. dollars requires only a one-step calculation.

Look up the latest AUD to USD exchange rate. For example, imagine the exchange rate was 1 AUD per 0.888 USD.

Multiply the number of AUD you want to convert by the exchange rate. In the example, if you wanted to convert $100 AUD into USD, you would multiply 100 by 0.888.


Change the units on the product you found in Step 2 to USD. In the example, your converted result would be $88.80 USD.
