Man reveals & # 39; sneak peak & # 39; of the new Aussie $ 20 bill – complete with a flying kookaburra that changes color and a portrait of a horse-stealing convict
- The new twenty-dollar banknotes are expected to be put into circulation in October
- The note still contains Mary Reibey and John Flynn with extra security functions
- In contrast to the current version, the new note will have a color-changing kookaburra
A man shared a photo of a new $ 20 bill before it was released in October.
The note still contains the legendary convicted Mary Reibey and founder of the ambulance of Reverend John Flynn, but has a clear window in the middle.
The new tone has a vibrant color scheme and even a color-changing kookaburra that flaps its wings when the tone is tilted.
It is not clear how the Reddit user named teen-bean1 took the note, which was unveiled by the RBA in February, but which will only be public in five months.
A Reddit user has shared a photo of a new $ 20 note before it is released in October
Earlier this month it was revealed that the Reserve Bank printed 400 million dollar bills with the word & # 39; responsibility spelled incorrectly & # 39 ;.
The most important comment on the Reddit thread was & # 39; I hope they passed it through the spell check & # 39 ;.
RBA officials in February revealed that the new design includes advanced security features that make it almost impossible to fake.
In a nod to the famous Australians, excerpts from Reverend Flyn's The Bushman's Companion and the name of Reiby's ships will also be printed on the note.
An English prisoner who was deported to Australia was seen by her contemporaries as an example of success and became legendary as a successful businesswoman in the colony.
Flynn was an Australian presbyterian pastor who founded what became the Royal Flying Doctor Service, the first air ambulance in the world.
Other new additions include a braid comb and three raised bumps such as a & # 39; tactile & # 39; function to make it easier to identify others' notes.
The release of the new $ 20 comes a year after a new $ 50 is rolled out in 2018
RBA released a modernized $ 5 for the first time in 2016, followed by the $ 10 in 2017.
A new $ 100 ticket is expected to be issued next year.
RBA Govenor Philip Lowe said the & # 39; same innovative security features & # 39; of the previously issued notes are included in the 20 to combat counterfeiting.
Lowe also said that the note & # 39; the lives of two excellent Australians & # 39; will keep celebrating.
& # 39; Their stories are told by the images we have processed on the banknote, which tell a rich and varied story about their life in Australia & he said.
A shameful spelling mistake has been spotted on the new Australian $ 50 bill
For all advanced functions, one basic design component was overlooked because the word & # 39; responsibility & # 39; misspelled as & # 39; responsibilty & # 39 ;.
