When you look closely at the picture above, you will see the word “responsibility” wrongly spelt as “responsibilty”, and this was repeated three different times on this new notes.
This first came to surface after a Melbourne radio station posted a photo of it on the social media.
Nevertheless, the spokesman for the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) said affirmatively that the authorities were aware of this, but correction shall be made from the next print onwards.
It was recorded that at least 46 million polymer notes with this error valuing 2.3 billion dollars in total (1.6 billion dollars) entered circulation in October.
The former Australian’s 50 dollar note had no spelling error and does featured the indigenous writer and inventor David Unaipon on a side and the popular country’s first female parliamentarian, Edith Cowan on the other side
The new improved note with the misspelled words are said to have been designed strategically to prevent counterfeiting and to contain tactile features with four raised bumps to enhance recognition for disabled people.
The 50 dollar note is the most widely circulated notes in Australia according to RBA.
