Australia $50 Banknote, 2018 First prefix

The 2018 Australia Fifty Dollar banknote features David Unaipon in the centre with a Swan at the left and a window at the bottom right.

Lettering reads ‘Legal tender throughout Australia’, ‘AUSTRALIA’ and ‘Fifty Dollars’.

On the reverse, Edith Dircksey Cowan in the centre.

Issued by the Reserve Bank of Australia as part of the Next Generation Banknote series, and was issued into general circulation on October 18, 2018.

 A typographical error, the last ‘i’ in “responsibility” being missing and spelled instead as “responsibilty”, was discovered on earlier print runs of the banknote in May 2019, affecting 46 million banknotes. The Reserve Bank confirmed it was aware of the error since December 2018, and will correct the spelling in later print runs.
