Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

            I have a friend who got a tip consisting of $7.10 in Australian coins which brings me to the point of this question.  How much would this come to in American money?

             Any shared thoughts in response to this question will be appreciated.  

            Thank you

I don't think you can actually exchange COINS - only paper money!

So, unless you are in Australia, it has no value! Your friend got burned, unless he plans to go there some day!

What are the dates and denominations on the coins?
There might be one there that has silver content.
We have sold many foreign coins on Ebay including Australian dimes.

Hello

          The two coins with the number 10 on them have dates of 1977 and 2002. The $2 coins have dates of 1988 and 1999.  The $1 coins have dates of 1984 and 2004.  The two coins with 20 on them have dates of 1978 and 2004.  The coin with 50 on it has a date of 2004.  

           Thanks

Correct, pretty much nothing unless you are going to Australia.  Coins are worth nothing outside their country of origin unless it shares a common border.  American coins were always worth something when they were made of silver, we were the last to actually silver currency.
