Hi, just wondering why the notes don’t come out when I print? The coins print perfectly.

I’m sorry to hear that one isn’t working for you, Jade! You may like to try using the ‘print as image’ function in Adobe PDF reader. We have an article over at https://support.teachstarter.com/en/articles/75327-resource-printing-issues that may assist with the printing of this file. Let me know how you go!

Hi 🙂 Just wondering if a new version of this resource may be in the works with the new style notes?

Hi Rebecca. Thank you for your suggestion. I have updated the word search to reflect the new Australian notes. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with.

For the lower grades it would be helpful if you could provide a sheet with the notes and coins labeled as well please.

Thanks for the suggestion. I have added a link to our Australian Currency Poster in the description section of this resource to assist students.
Kind regards
