The Reserve Bank of Australia will feature the native wattle as the new design of the five dollar note. It will be introduced on September 1, 2016, the National Wattle Day.
This is the first of the nation’s next generation of banknotes. The new AUD$5 will have new security features. Different species of Australian wattle will also be portrayed on each denomination.
The banknotes, however, will have the same color, size, and people currently featured on each denomination. The new series will also include a "tactile" feature to help the vision-impaired community distinguish between different denominations of banknotes.
