Australia’s new “ Next Generation Wattle” series of banknotes commenced on 1 September 2016 (Wattle Day) with the release of the new $5. Each note in the series will include a different type of wattle in its design. As can be seen from the images of the $5 security has been substantially upgraded in comparison with the existing issue. Tactile features are now included to assist the visually impaired. Design is modified to update the note and to accommodate the enhanced “top to bottom security window”.

Other values in the series will issue progressively although no timetable has yet been announced other than that the new $10 will issue in 2017.

Patience will be required in sourcing quantities of the First (AA16) and Last (as yet unknown) prefixes as the Reserve Bank has advised it has discontinued its mail order service as matter of course.

Notes are available in an official folders. One folder contains a single 2016 Wattle Series $5 whilst a second contains a single 2016 Wattle Series $5 AND a former series 2015 dated $5. Prefixes are mixed. Please enquire if you want folders.

Happy Collecting.
