The Royal and other more exotic suggestions such as the austral, the oz, the boomer, the roo, the kanga, the emu, the digger, the dinkum and the ming were all proposed in 1965 as names for what in Australia?

Yes, when Australia decided to move away from £/s/d and decimalise in 1966, these along with the Quid were all considered as names for the currency.
Originally The Royal was selected, however this proved to be extremely unpopular and in late 1965 the decision was changed to The Dollar.
