Australia is getting a new $10 note


‘The $10 banknote celebrates two famous Australian writers, Dame Mary Gilmore and AB ‘Banjo’ Paterson. Their work is recognised in several design elements on the banknote, including images of a pen nib in two of the clear windows and excerpts of their poetry in microprint.’

Each banknote in the new series will feature a different species of native Australian wattle and bird. The $10 banknote features the Bramble Wattle (Acacia victoriae) and the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita).

Leading the world in plastic banknote technology. Shame our government keeps cutting the CSIRO’s funding that you know developed this and this thing you might of heard of… Wi-Fi amongst others.
