Reserve Bank of Australia launched braille currency
September 4, 2016
The Reserve Bank of Australia has launched special $5 currency notes for the visually impaired.
The notes have a tactile quality which means that the blind can identify the value of the note through touch.
There is a raised bump on each of the long edges of the note next to the top-to-bottom window.
The notes were created after thorough research, trials and testing that took many years.
The note will help people identify the difference between a real banknote and a fake one.
