R was given our just released new five dollar note in his change at the supermarket. I had heard the new note is very bright and I was prepared to dislike it, but I don't. I like it. It is our lowest denomination note is plastic polymer rather than paper. Not that anyone would bother trying because of its low value, but it looks pretty impossible to forge. The clear parts on the note change, depending on the lighting and angle of viewing. The backwards five becomes the dome of a building. Between the star and the bird is another bird that you can make fly by moving the note.
