New 5$ Australia with KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO from KURZ

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has released into circulation a new $5 banknote, printed on Guardian® polymer substrate and incorporating a fresh new design. One of the key security features is a KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO® foil stripe from KURZ, applied over the top-to-bottom clear window - a world first in the Banknote industry.

All other Australian denominations will be upgraded over the coming years, with each banknote in the series incorporating the same security features.

The RBA's Assistant Governor Michele Bullock said: "We led the world in plastic banknotes. We are now leading the world in the design and technology in the way we've integrated the security features into this banknote."
