The Reserve Bank of Australia has confirmed that there are nearly 46 million $50 notes that have been printed with a spelling mistake.
The $50 AUD note is the “new and improved” banknote that was released in October 2018, the banknote has a number of technologies that were implied to prevent counterfeiting.
But one thing many did not see was that the note has a spelling mistake, the note misspells the word “responsibility”.
The fifty dollar note features indigenous writer David Unaipon on one side and Edith Cowan on the other side.
The Reserve Bank of Australia printed out a micro-text with the exerpts of Unaipon’s Book and the first speech to the parliament of Cowan.
The error happened in the speech of Cowan.
The micro-text says, “It is a great responsibilty [sic] to be the only woman here, and I want to emphasise the necessity which exists for other women being here.”
The spokeswoman of the Reserve Bank of Australia said that they are “aware of it and the spelling will be corrected at the next print run”.
The $50 dollar note that was introduced recently has a tactile feature of four raised bumps on the bank note that allows people to identify it.
The Reserve Bank Of Australia added that the fifty-dollar banknote is their most circulated note in the country.
the update five and ten dollar notes have been released and the new twenty dollar note is set to be released in October this year.
