Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This is a multifunction template. At its simplest, it adds the currency mark "A$", as recommended by MOS:CURRENCY for many situations. The template can also link to the Australian dollar article and can even calculate inflation. See warnings below.

Usage[change source]



  • {{A$}}A$
  • {{A$|123.45}}A$123.45

Link[change source]

The parameter |link=yes may be used to link A$ to the article Australian dollar. This is turned off by default, but may be appropriate for the first occurrence of the term in an article.


  • {{A$|123.45|link=yes}}A$123.45

Inflation calculation[change source]

The template supports inflation calculation, by way of {{Inflation}}. If the second parameter is used, to specify a year, and this year is within a certain range of available inflation data (specifically, if 1901 ≤ year < 2010), the equivalent value represented in 2010 dollars will be calculated in parentheses. However, this function should only be used in appropriate situations.

  • {{A$|value|year}}
  • {{A$|value|year|round=round|about=yes}}


  • {{A$|100|1900}}A$100
  • {{A$|100|1901}}A$100 (equivalent to $6,551 in 2010)
  • {{A$|100|1966}}A$100 (equivalent to $1,116 in 2010)
  • {{A$|100|1966|link=yes}}A$100 (equivalent to $1,116 in 2010)
  • {{A$|100|2009}}A$100 (equivalent to $102.84 in 2010)
  • {{A$|100|2010}}A$100
  • {{A$|100|2021}}A$100
  • {{A$|100|2022}}A$100

Additional parameter |about=yes will cause the template to calculate to the nearest dollar (instead of the nearest cent), and prefix the calculated value with "about". The rounding can be fine-tuned further by using |round=integer. These parameters may be combined.


  • {{A$|10|1935}}A$10 (equivalent to $416.08 in 2010)
  • {{A$|10|1935|round=0}}A$10 (equivalent to $416 in 2010)
  • {{A$|10|1935|about=yes}}A$10 (equivalent to about $416 in 2010)
  • {{A$|1000|1935|round=2}}A$1,000 (equivalent to $41,608.11 in 2010)
  • {{A$|1000|1935|round=-2}}A$1,000 (equivalent to $41,600 in 2010)
  • {{A$|1000|1935|round=-2|about=yes}}A$1,000 (equivalent to about $41,600 in 2010)
