What’s on the new $5 banknote
The banknote has a range of innovative new security features designed to keep the banknote secure from counterfeiting.
Each denomination in the new series of banknotes will feature a different species of Australian wattle and a native bird within a number of the security features. On the $5 banknote, these are the Prickly Moses wattle and the Eastern Spinebill.
The new $5 banknote retains the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which is drawn from the same source photograph represented on the first polymer $5 banknote. The banknote also depicts New Parliament House and the Forecourt Mosaic, which is based on a Central Desert dot-style painting by Michael Nelson Jagamara titled ‘Possum and Wallaby Dreaming’ and a schematic plan of the New Parliament House. This was based on the Design Development Landscape Plan, which was provided by the Parliament House Construction Authority.
Date of the first issue
The new $5 polymer banknote was issued on 1 September 2016.
