The Reserve Bank of Australia has today revealed the design of the new $10 banknote that will be issued into circulation from September 2017. The images show the basic design artwork on each side of the banknote.

The Governor, Philip Lowe, said:

“The $10 banknote celebrates two famous Australian writers, Dame Mary Gilmore and AB ‘Banjo’ Paterson. Their work is recognized in several design elements on the banknote, including images of a pen nib in two of the clear windows and excerpts of their poetry in microprint.”

Innovative new security features have been incorporated in the new $10 banknote to help keep them secure from counterfeiting. These security features are similar to those in the $5 banknote issued in 2016, such as the top-to-bottom clear window and the patch with a rolling color effect.

Each banknote in the new series will feature a different species of native Australian wattle and bird. The $10 banknote features the Bramble Wattle (Acacia victoriae) and the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita).

The Bank has been working closely with various parties in recent years to ensure that the new banknotes can be used in a broad range of typical day-to-day transactions across the country, including in machines that take or dispense banknotes. Although the new $10 banknotes will be issued in September, it may take some time for them to be widely circulated. The existing series of banknotes can continue to be used as all previously issued banknotes remain legal tender.

Full details of the design and security features on the new $10 banknote are available on the Bank’s website at banknotes.rba.gov.au.
