As you may have read in my post earlier this week, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) will be updating the Australian Banknotes consecutively over the next 5 years, starting with the $5 banknote which was released today, 1 September 2016. The new notes will have upgraded security features to ensure Australia's banknotes remain secure into the future.
One of the innovative new security features is the reversing 5.
About the feature
When the banknote is tilted, the number 5 inside the building alternately appears forwards, disappears, then appears backwards. Check out a cool GIF of the feature here and read more ‘did you knows’.
Did you know?
- The Federation Pavilion was opened in Centennial Park in Sydney on 1 January 1901 and was the site of the official ceremony that marked the proclamation of the Commonwealth of Australia.
If you come across a suspicious banknote, here’s what you should do.
