Visit your nearest Money Services to send cash to a friend in Australia. It’s easy to get started – just follow these simple steps.

  • Find your nearest Money Services using our store locator.

  • Stop by and give the store associate the receiver’s name, their location, and the amount you want to send so the associate can set up the transfer.

  • Choose how the receiver will receive the funds.

  • Choose your transfer option.

  • Give the fee* and amount to be sent to the store associate either as cash or using a bank-issued debit card from the US.

  • Give the receiver the 10-digit Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN) so they can pick up the cash safely – they’ll also need a photo ID.

The Australian dollar replaced the Australian pound in 1966. For a brief period in the 1960s, the Reserve Bank of Australia was ready to call their new currency the Royal, but a huge public backlash stopped that from happening. The dollar is divided into 100 cents. New Australian dollar banknotes are being made with special tactile features that will allow vision-impaired people to identify them by touch.

† Date available will be displayed on receipt for international transfers over $15. Service and funds availability depends on certain factors including the Service selected, the selection of delayed delivery options, special terms applicable to each Service, amount sent, destination country, currency availability, regulatory issues, consumer protection issues, identification requirements, delivery restrictions, agent location hours, and differences in time zones (collectively, “Restrictions”).
