    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.

    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/2currencysheetsbeptestsheet.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.

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

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