You Can Tear Australian Dollars Apart

1 min readDec 24, 2018

Australian dollar is the world’s most traded currency after US dollar, euro, yen, pound sterling, and Swiss franc.

In 1988 Australia started issuing plastic banknotes (the first banknote was dedicated to the 200th anniversary of European settlements in Australia). Today all the banknotes are made from special plastic.

Here’s the interesting part. Any banknote can be torn apart but it will still remain a means of payment! The value of any banknote’s part the square of which is no less than 20 per cent and no more than 80 per cent, is equal to the half of the value of the original note. So, for instance, you can easily use the 100 dollars banknote torn in half for payments. Each half will be equal to 50 dollars.

By the way, it is very convenient when you need some change. What do you think? Would you like to be able to tear your money apart when the delivery boy doesn’t have any change back?
