: I am interested in the derivation of the word 'dosh ' meaning money.

: Can anyone help?

My 1994 Collin's Dictionary says: 'British and Australian slang for money. 20th century. Origin unknown.'
Hopefully, others can do a bit better! It's not recorded in my copy of the '1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue.'
