new $5 on the way

There is a new $5 note to be released in Australia the 1st day of spring. 1st September to commemorate the 50th year of decimal currency. It will feature a different wattle on each denomination and is the first in a new line of notes to be released with improved security measures and textured to assist people that are vision impaired.

Re: new $5 on the way

Can they please make them available in at-cost full sheets, or even at a bit of a premium, I'd love to make some $5 notepads like the Woz makes $2 ones:

He buys the $2 sheets from here: http://www.moneyfactorystore.gov/2curre … sheet.aspx

Then has the bound into a pad and perforated. That's where his 'printer' comes in.

So they are actually legal tender from the government.

Re: new $5 on the way

According to Australian Geographic (http://www.australiangeographic.com.au/ … 0614418338), the new $5 bill looks like this:

Not sure that I'm a fan of it. The colour of the wattle just seems strange against the rest of the note.

The Wattles has already been described as looking like dirty toilet brushes.

Re: new $5 on the way

Its not the picture that is important but the "confidence" in the product.
