Reserve Bank releases new $5 note for Australia
The reserve bank of Australia has unveiled the design for the new five dollar note.
A familiar face and colour scheme has been retained with a few additional features.
An eastern spinebill is centred and the prickly moses wattle is scattered on the front and back.
The Governor, Glenn Stevens says – ”Innovative new security features have been incorporated to help keep Australia’s banknotes secure from counterfeiting into the future.’
The note will be issued into circulation from 1 September 2016.
