Update - November 2019


New $100 production banknotes are now available from the Reserve Bank of Australia for calibration purposes for banknote equipment manufacturers. These banknotes are part of the first print run that will be issued into circulation in late 2020.

$100 banknotes from another print run will be made available for testing purposes in mid-2020.  They will be from a larger print run with more production variation, and have a different signature block and year of print. Further information about the new $100 banknotes for machine users, including retailers and commercial banks, will be made available around the same time.


Further, the design of the new $100 banknote will be revealed to the public early next year. We will keep you updated on the design reveal details closer to the date.


If you are a banknote equipment manufacturer and have a signed Banknote Loan Agreement with us, you will have received 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.
