Australia Exchange Rate

Australia Exchange Rate

Exchange Rate in Australia

The Australian dollar experienced fluctuations from 2013 to 2022. Early in the decade, it remained strong but began to depreciate mid-decade due to declining commodity prices and changes in global monetary policy. The COVID-19 pandemic initially caused further depreciation, but a subsequent recovery was seen as the global economy rebounded. Overall, the Australian dollar's movement reflected the country's strong ties to global commodity markets and domestic interest rates relative to those in the U.S.

The exchange rate in Australia ended 2022 at AUD 0.68 per USD, compared to the end-2021 rate of AUD 0.73 per USD and the rate a decade earlier of AUD 0.89 per USD. For more exchange rate information, visit our dedicated page.
