June 2019 Newsletter


New $20

We are now accepting orders from banknote equipment manufacturers for the next round of new $20 banknotes. These notes come from a larger production run and include a change in signature block and more production variation. They are now available for collection from our National Banknote Site in Craigieburn.

We are also still taking orders for the first round of new $20 banknotes (with the previous signature block). This material was first made available to the industry for loan from November 2018.

Banknotes from both of these production runs will go into circulation in October 2019.


Information about the new $20 assurance banknotes for commercial banks, retailers and other machine users will be available closer to issuance.


New $100

New $100 transportation notes are still available to order. Transportation banknotes allow equipment manufacturers to develop and implement any transportation updates resulting from the architecture of the new banknotes. These notes do not represent final production notes.

New $100 banknotes will be available later this year for calibration purposes for banknote equipment manufacturers. These banknotes are part of the first print run that will be issued into circulation.

Orders for the new $20 Banknotes and $100 Transportation Banknotes

If you are a banknote equipment manufacturer and have a signed Banknote Loan Agreement with us, you will receive a separate email with instructions for placing orders. If you have not received this email, or would like more information about joining our program, please contact our Industry Engagement Team.
