Australia unveils new 50-dollar note

The Reserve Bank of Australia has unveiled the design of the new 50-dollar banknote. As with the existing banknote, the new 50-dollar features portraits of Aboriginal writer and inventor David Unaipon and the first female member of an Australian parliament, Edith Cowan. The new banknotes will be released into general circulation in October 2018.

The security features include a top-to-bottom clear window that contains dynamic features such as a reversing number. There is also a patch with a rolling-colour effect and microprint featuring excerpts from David Unaipon's book and Edith Cowan's maiden parliamentary speech.
