Is it safer to send Australian dollars?

Not necessarily. You may think there’s no foreign exchange risk when you send Australian dollars overseas. However, the currency exchange rate is likely to change by the time the funds arrive. This means you could be paying a different amount than required, once it’s converted to the local currency by the recipient.
