Public reaction to new Next Generation banknotes

Benedict Brook at news.com.au

It’s fair to say the reaction to Australia’s new $5 note has been mixed. And when I say “mixed”, I mean Australia is currently, as a nation, ropeable about what’s just happened to their beer tokens.

On Tuesday, Reserve Bank Governor Glenn Stevens lauded the new pink note’s true blue features: “Each banknote will depict a different species of Australian wattle and a native bird within a number of the elements. On the $5 banknote, these are the Prickly Moses wattle and the Eastern Spinebill.”

But it’s Australians themselves who are feeling prickly as the new note instantly faced an avalanche of criticism.

It has variously been called similar to a “mid-80s primary school mural”, having all the appeal of “vomit” or simply “HIIIIIIIIIDEOUS”.

The Today Show’s Lisa Wilkinson even wondered if the Queen had been given a bit of a nip and tuck on the new note.

But it all could have been so different. Across the globe, central banks have been revamping their banknotes, coming up with truly memorable and, some might argue, more on point designs than Australia’s new fiver.
