RBA unveils new $50 note design

Australia's $50 note has been spruced up, with new security features and four bumps on each edge for the vision impaired, while maintaining the yellow colour which gives rise to its 'pineapple' nickname.

The Reserve Bank of Australia on Thursday unveiled the design for the new $50 note, which will be released into circulation in October.

As with the current design, the 'pineapple' features portraits of David Unaipon, an inventor and Australia's first published Aboriginal author, and Edith Cowan, the first female member of an Australian parliament.
