    They got a lot of grief for the blue stripe down the middle but apparently that is a clear stripe, they just put it on a blue background.

    At least it will tone down the contrast between the wattles and that dark blue.

    i have also heard the new $5 dollar note will/can cause trouble at vending machines/self serve check outs

    as the clear strip down the middle of the note make the machine thinks there is two notes going in for

    payment and not one note.

    I thought it was to deter hoarders, who wants that sort of thing lying around where they live :)

    They are just trying to flush out all the notes under the mattresses of people who cashed in their Super and are now crying poor.

    The third window is harder to see, but is behind the bird on the top corner

    $10 for a note in a holder or $5 for one in change, I hope to get some of the new notes without the 100% premium but it is hard to get excited about them.

    Unless you can get uncut sheets, I'm not interested.

    Read somewhere that they printed 17 Million new notes.

    So "THEY" just created 85 million $$$

    However, taxpayers will pay $37 million for research, development and public awareness of the upgrade of all denominations over the next 12 years.

    The current $10 bank note will be upgraded with new security features in about a year.

    I assume they are going to take the old notes out of circulation at some stage. Couldn't find any info on that though, didn't look too hard either.
