Yeah… We don’t use pounds as a currency… We use the dollar (AUD)… Nice try though.
That, and Australian stores are allowed to sell lightbulbs to unlicensed people…?

these laws are not necessarily current, they could be from years ago but have not been taken off the books.

This law is dated from pre-dollar Australia. Like UK, the pound is divided into 20 shillings and then a shilling is further divided into 12 pence. That’s hard and complex. So, the government of Australia decided to decimalise the currency in 1966 by set £1 to $2. That’s easy. That’s because of more of Australia’s trade going to other nations which use decimal currency instead of Great Britain that once ruled Australia. Thank you for reading the information!
