New Australian Bank Notes

New Australian Bank note designs have appeared lately, designed by Australian design studio Emery. Seems the designs are change for security sake rather than improving on the current design, which is seen as one of the best note designs in the world – in relation to design, colour and print and material technology. It appears most of the change is in the design with the addition of some new security features. A bank spokesman said that the redesign was taking place to ensure Australia maintained its “relatively low levels of counterfeiting”. It’s costing $9.3 Million and is now 2 years overdue.

The designers were briefed with new portraits of the notes’ subjects and asked to capture Australian characteristics with “youthful” and “energetic design qualities. The new notes retain most of the existing design elements including colour, size and their current portraits
