The Australian Dollar (AUD) A$:

The Australian Dollar is the form of currency used by the Commonwealth of Australia. This region includes Norfolk Island, Christmas Island, and Cocos (Keeling) Islands, as well as the Pacific Island regions of Tuvalu, Nauru, and Kiribati. The Australian currency is typically contracted through the dollar sign ($). The dollar is sometimes distinguished from other currencies using the dollar by A$. It can be divided into 100 cents.

The Japanese Yen (JPY):

The Japanese Yen is the official currency of Japan and very influential not only in East-Asian markets, but markets worldwide. It is the third-most traded currency in the world and the fourth-most used reserved currency. The only currencies used more for reserves are the U.S. dollar, the euro, and the Great Britain pound. Following the custom of East Asia, yen in large quantities are counted in multiples of 10,000 rather than multiples of 1,000 as they are in most of the world. Yen, in Japanese, directly translates as "round object" and is pronounced with a silent "Y." The yen was introduced in 1871 as a response to Spanish dollars prominent in the area at the time and the silver coins minted in Hong Kong. The first yen were a dollar unit in function and were modeled after the Spanish piece of eight. In 1897, Japan linked the yen to a gold standard. In 1973, the yen was taken off the gold standard and allowed to float on the market.
