A reminder to the community that our currency has designs that enable easier detection of fake notes

Above: With these key security features you can quickly and easily check your banknote is real. Refer HERE to a List of Security Features for full details.


It is an offence to knowingly possess counterfeit banknotes. Suspect banknotes should be given to State or Federal police. It is important to note that counterfeits have no value – you will not be reimbursed. If they prove to be genuine banknotes, you will receive full value for them.

If you come across a banknote that you suspect is counterfeit:

  • Handle the suspect banknote as little as possible and store it in an envelope.

  • Note any relevant information, such as how it came into your possession.

  • Report the matter immediately to State or Federal police.

You are well within your rights to refuse to accept a banknote if you have concerns about it.

Under no circumstances should you take actions that may jeopardise your safety or that of others.
