Reserve Bank of Australia

The Reserve Bank of Australia issued approximately 46 million new Australian $50 notes in late 2018 with a typo in the background fine print: "responsibility" is misspelled as "responsibilty", the third "i" is missing. Part of the rollout of Australia's redesigned currency, the A$50 notes feature the first female member of the Australian parliament, social reformer Edith Cowan.

Australia's A$50 note has a blunder in the small print - and it took more than six months to spot.
