Ah. Currency was an Australian term for people born in Australia, in contrast to those born in Britain. The other residents of Australia were Aboriginals.
As applied to people rather than money, the term originally had derogatory connotations – by the early 1820s, "currency had stuck for male and female native-born and everyone knew what it implied". However, it was soon reclaimed by the native-born as a positive term, in order to distinguish themselves from more recent arrivals. In Two Years in New South Wales, published in 1827, Peter Miller Cunningham wrote: "Our colonial-born brethren are best known here by the name of Currency, in contradistinction to Sterling, or those born in the mother-country. The name was originally given by a facetious paymaster of the 73rd Regiment quartered here–the pound currency being at that time inferior to the pound sterling." In 1832, Horatio Wills – born in Sydney in 1811 to a convict father – founded The Currency Lad. It was "the first newspaper published in the colony which specifically set out to protect the interests of the native-born".

You may both mock but I generally come up with a good explanation if asked.

Though how Custard gets to Carvel I'm not sure.

I will confess the brand had heretofore escaped my notice.

On the other hand I'm clearly discovering new things here. How, for instance, does accompany invoke paid?

1. If "escort" has shifted to that extent, I'm clearly not going to offer to escort anyone again. Or I could start charging, I suppose.

2.You're chancing your arm with oilers, there's places where that's a bit derogatory. Texas springs to mind.
