In a move to improve security the new note will have a clear window strip, similar to the one seen on the new $5 note, as well as tactile details to assist the vision-impaired community with distinguishing between denominations.
According to the RBA, it will take some time for the new bank notes to be widely circulated.
The Reserve Bank of Australia, which unveiled the new design today, said new security features had also been worked into the notes, similar to those on $5 notes released a year ago.
Key aspects of the current note are carried over in the new design for ease of recognition, including the two famous Australian writers Dame Mary Gilmore and AB "Banjo" Paterson. There are also images of a pen nib in two of the clear windows and excerpts of their poetry in microprint.
