The new Australian $20 banknote is the latest release of Australia’s next generation of banknotes. Key aspects of the existing $20 banknote design have been retained including the colour, size and people portrayed (Mary Reibey and Reverend John Flynn).
To help keep Australia’s banknotes secure from counterfeiting into the future, the new $20 banknote displays the same range of innovative security features as shown on the new $5, $10 and $50 banknotes, including the distinctive top-to-bottom window, flying Kookaburra, reversing ‘20’ and rolling colour effect. The tactile feature continues to assist the vision-impaired community to identify the value of different denominations of banknotes.

The word “SPECIMEN” is required on all banknote images for security purposes and does not appear on the actual notes.
