Australian banknotes are among the safest in the world. And to keep them that way the Reserve Bank is introducing a new series of banknotes. Now in circulation is the new five-dollar banknote.
You’ll see many innovative security features including a distinctive top-to-bottom window.
Tilt the banknote and you’ll see an Eastern Spinebill move its wings.
Inside the Federation Pavilion at the bottom of the window is a number 5 that changes direction.
Turn the banknote over and in the top corner you’ll see a prominent patch that changes color in a rolling effect.
And there’s a tactile feature to assist the vision-impaired community.
Importantly, all existing banknotes can continue to be used.
The Reserve Bank is making our banknotes ‘Clearly More Secure’.
