Reserve Bank reveals new design for Australia's $10 note

AUSTRALIA lost its collective mind when the new $5 note was revealed in April. Now the Reserve Bank has released the new tenner.

Some commenters suggested the fiver "looks like vomit" while others pondered, simply: "What even is that?"

The new design kept the same basic colours and size but importantly incorporated a new "tactile" feature to help the vision-impaired distinguish between currency.

Australia lost its collective mind of the fiver? Missed that one.

I think that's because in the very first reveal, the note was photographed over a gaudy purple background, and all the transparent areas of the note seemed like they were horribly purple. But no one knew this of course, and in reality, the note actually turned out to be quite lovely (imo).

The problem was that the photos published didn't do it justice. The clear stripe wasn't shown properly and made it look silly in the photos. When you actually got the note is look much better.

This one looks good too when you hold it up:

Re: Reserve Bank reveals new design for Australia's $10 note

The number of detailed security features the SNB has fit on the new 50 Franc note is staggering.

I wonder if the RBA's new designs have nearly as much detail as the Swiss put in their currency.
