The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) announced the currency note on Friday, which will retain its blue coloring but will feature all-new images of native Australian flora and fauna. Similar to the new $5 note unveiled a year ago, innovative new security features, such as the top-to-bottom clear window, have been incorporated into the new note in a bid to prevent counterfeiting.

"The $10 banknote celebrates two famous Australian writers, Dame Mary Gilmore and AB "Banjo" Paterson", RBA Governor Philip Lowe said.

What do you think of the new notes?

The design is similar to the new five dollar note revealed last September, featuring a revamped design, a translucent strip down the middle, and enhanced security features to reduce risk of counterfeiting.

From September 1 2017, the above bank note will begin to enter circulation in small numbers. There are also images of a pen nib in two of the clear windows and excerpts of their poetry in microprint.

The new notes contain a range of updated security features meant to deter fraud, including the see-through patch and several holographic elements that can be seen by moving the note slowly from side to side.

Why does the new $10 note have pollen on it?

The note comes complete with symbols of rural life - sulphur-crested cockatoos, a farm-house and windmill, bramble wattle.

In a statement, the RBA said it may take some time for the new bills to be circulated widely.
