RESERVE BANK OF AUSTRALIA
Australia's A$50 banknote misspells “responsibility“
2019-05-09 11:05:50

Australia's latest A$50 note comes with a big blunder hidden in the small print - a somewhat embarrassing typo, the BBC reports. 

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) spelled "responsibility" as "responsibilty" on millions of the new yellow notes.

The RBA confirmed the typo on Thursday and said the error would be fixed in future print runs.

But for now, around 46 million of the new notes are in use across the country.

The bills were released late last year and feature Edith Cowan, the first female member of an Australian parliament.

What looks like a lawn in the background of Ms Cowan's portrait is in fact rows of text - a quotation from her first speech to parliament.
