Aussie

Slang term that is used to refer to the Australian dollar.

Similar to how the U.S. dollar is sometimes called the greenback or the Canadian dollar is called the loonie, the Australian dollar is sometimes called the Aussie to distinguish it from all the other dollars. It is also denoted as A$ or AU$.
