Australia has not had one or two dollar notes for many years. Don't miss them either.
Different sized plastic colour notes. Long lasting, very simple to differentiate. When I was in the US last year for E3, I could not tell the difference without a long hard look at which note was which. Here a five dollar note is purple, ten is blue, twenty is orange, fifty is yellow and hundred is green. Five is the smallest and hundred is the largest. And the difference in design is not just a dead president. Totally different designs and people who are not politicians are on our notes.
Sales tax is included in the shelf price. What you see marked on the shelf or on the item as the price is what you pay at the register. It seems like a very simple concept to me.
Elimination of one and two cent pieces. All cash sales rounded to the nearest five cents.
Come to Australia and see how your monetary system should be done.
