The NSW Central Coast local currency

Central Coast LETS is a growing network of people on the NSW Central Coast of Australia who participate in a system of alternative trading known as LETS (Local Energy Trading System). LETS is a community based non-profit trading system that enables its members to exchange a wide variety of goods and services using little or no cash. It is a method of trading which depends on energy, skills and time instead of money, exchanging a unit of local currency (Shells), not as an alternative to conventional money but to complement the current system of trade.

Central Coast LETS is part of a network of people throughout Australia and the world who welcome a system of alternative trading. The NSW Central Coast’s local currency is called the “Shell”.
