Car wash owners have been previously made aware of the impending release of a new Australian $20 banknote, known colloquially in Australia as the lobster.
We trust by now all ACWA Members have taken steps to make sure of a smooth transition to the use of the new currency. In its June Newsletter, the Reserve Bank of Australia formally announced the note will be released into general circulation in October 2019.
The note celebrates two new faces. The first Mary Reibey was a convict deported to Australia in 1792 for stealing a horse and who went on to become a successful Australian merchant, shipowner and trader. The second face on the note is that of the Reverend John Flynn, who pioneered the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
The Reserve bank has advised that “further information about the new $20 assurance banknotes for commercial banks, retailers and other machine users will be available closer to issuance”.
New $100 banknotes, sometimes known to those lucky enough to see one as a Bradman, Kermit or Granny Smith, will be introduced and available later this year.
Whatever you want to call them, let’s hope a couple of them come your way!
