The new Australian $100 banknote is the latest release of Australia’s next generation of banknotes.
The new $100 banknote celebrates the contributions of two outstanding Australians, Sir John Monash and Dame Nellie Melba. Sir John Monash was an engineer, soldier and civic leader. He was a significant figure in the building-construction industry. Monash is also widely recognised for his service as a commander in the First World War. Dame Nellie Melba was an internationally renowned soprano who performed in Australia, Europe and the United States of America in the late 19th and early 20th century. Melba also made important contributions to the arts through teaching at the Melba Memorial Conservatorium of Music, now the Melba Opera Trust, in her home town of Melbourne.
To help keep Australia’s banknotes secure from counterfeiting into the future, the new $100 banknote displays the same range of innovative security features as shown on the new $5, $10, $20 and $50 banknotes.
The tactile feature continues to assist the vision-impaired community to identify the value of different denominations of banknotes.
