    The Reserve Bank today unveiled the design of the next generation note, which goes into circulation from September.

    Famous Australian writers Dame Mary Gilmore and AB 'Banjo' Paterson remain, with some tweaks to how their work is recognised.

    Images of a pen nib feature in the clear windows, as do excerpts of their poetry in microprint, RBA governor Philip Lowe explained.

    It also includes a range of innovative anti-counterfeit security features, including the top-to-bottom clear window and a patch with a rolling colour effect.

    Each banknote in the new series will showcase a different species of native wattle and birds, with the $10 note features a bramble wattle and the sulphur-crested cockatoo.

    The existing series of banknotes can continue to be used as all previously issued banknotes remain legal tender, the RBA said.
