As a numismatist I find this fascinating. This means that the Australian Pound (worth two Australian Dollars at the time of decimal conversion) is now worth more than the British Pound, which is worth, $1.60US. If the Australian Pound still existed, it would be worth $2.00 US or about £1.25 GBP. So much for the ‘Australian Rupee’ as it was derisively known by smug pommies following years of depreciation in comparison to the GBP....
Bloomberg money changer has:
2 AUSTRALIAN DOLLAR (AUD) = 1.2308 BRITISH POUND (GBP).
1 AUSTRALIAN DOLLAR (AUD) = 0.9869 US DOLLAR (USD) as of 5 PM PDT.
1 BRITISH POUND (GBP) = 1.6036 US DOLLAR (USD)
