The United Kingdom isn’t the only member of the Commonwealth of Nations to get a new fiver this month. Or even the first.
On Sept. 1, the Reserve Bank of Australia released a new $5 banknote into circulation with the addition of new anti-counterfeiting technologies that can only be described as bonzer.
According to a press release from the bank, new security features designed into the polymer note include a world-first clear top-to-bottom window and several dynamic features that change as the banknote is tilted.
The $5 banknote is the first in a new series. Other denominations will follow in coming years, each incorporating the same security features, the release said.
The new series also includes a tactile feature to help the vision-impaired community distinguish between different denominations. Color, size and famous faces on the notes have been maintained, the central bank said.
Australia’s old $5 notes will be removed from circulation over time, but will continue to be accepted as legal tender.
