Information on money in East Timor sent through by Andy (Sam’s dad)
Adding money – this is one of my favourite topics as I am an accountant. So adding money is my job!
Over here in East Timor money is an interesting topic. They don’t have their own currency like we do in Australia – Australian dollars. They use the US dollar and the same notes as they use in the USA. Some other countries also do this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_use_of_the_US_dollar#Dollarization_and_fixed_exchange_rates

East Timor is one of the few countries that use US dollar notes, but not US coins. The coins here are called centavos, instead of cents. One hundred centavos equal 1 dollar so they work the same as cents. But what’s interesting is that last month a new centavo coin was introduced. Its 100 centavos so its worth the same amount as the US 1 dollar notes. The 100 centavo coins and the US 1 dollar notes are both used now. http://www.bancocentral.tl/Download/Announcement/Media_Realease_%20100%20Centavos_En.pdf
I think its the only place in the world where this has happened.
The new coin was introduced because the US 1 dollar notes get worn and dirty very quickly. Some of them are quite disgusting. I’m glad they’ve brought in the new coins.
