New $20 design revealed

We're excited to announce that the Governor of the Reserve Bank today officially revealed the design of the new $20, which will be released into circulation in October this year. Read all about it in our media release.

 If you have ordered any of the production notes for testing, you will be familiar with the look of the $20 already, but now you are free to share the details of the design with your own staff and stakeholders.

You can explore the security and design features - including animations of the dynamic features - more closely HERE. You will also be able to download the security features flyer, or you can order hard copies from us through our Industry Engagement Team.

Test material

New $20 banknotes are still available for machine manufacturers to calibrate their equipment. We provide two lots of production notes for testing. The first run of notes is available to order now. In June you will be able to order notes from a new, much larger production run which will include typical production variations and a new signature block 

New $100 transportation notes will be available at Easter, and we'll give you a heads up as soon as you can order them

 If you would like to order test materials or if you have any questions or wish to discuss other ways in which we might be able to help, don't hesitate to contact our Industry Engagement Team.
