Australia’s new notes help vision impaired and curb forgery

Starting with the $5 note this year, Australia’s Reserve Bank is releasing new notes which are a world first. Most noticeably they have a clear vertical strip down the middle, which houses various security features that become visible when the note is tilted. They also include a “tactile” feature, so people who are blind or vision-impaired can distinguish between different denominations.
