Australia misspells ‘responsibility’ on 46M new $50 bank notes

www.foxnews.com...

Come on man.
You had one job.



The country's central bank has claimed mea culpa after an eagle-eyed radio listener noticed that there was a microscopic typo on the country’s new 50 Australian dollar ($35) bank note. Triple M Radio posted on Instagram on Thursday a magnified photograph of the bank note showing the misspelling of “responsibility.” The word appears three times on the note, and every time, the third “I” is missing.

OOPs or should I say Oi!



The bills were released in October and feature Edith Cowan, the first female member of an Australian parliament.

Damn it...... it had to be the one honoring the SHEILA.....



The misspell appears in an extract from her first speech to the Western Australia state Parliament in 1921 that is printed in what appears to be a lawn next to her bust.




"It is a great responsibility to be the only woman here, and I want to emphasize the necessity which exists for other women being here," reads in part the quote, which is repeated several times over in microscopic print.

Congrats to her, she sounds like quite a woman.

Oh they will be collectors items and only increase in value.
Honoring a historic first and the missed typo are a perfect storm.

Wonder if it has to do with hiring based on diversity rather than merit?

They should just adopt that spelling as the new country standard.

Will these really become valuable, considering there's 46 million of them?

Simple, during proofreading on the computer program before the bills were printed.

Since they issued them and did not attempt to destroy them, I don't know.
It is a minor error, but an error.

Not Govt per se - but what happens when corporations get the cherrys cheap from the Govt - the govt claims privatization retuns capital to the people - Corps usually pay a fraction of the assets - ripping off the taxpayer - and inefficiently "fukc" it up

Time for a conspiracy theory on my part!
Someone did this on purpose, and made sure to keep their hands on a boatload of them.
Like any good central bank, these notes will then be removed from circulation and replaced with corrected ones.
in 10 years time they will be very rare, as most people who hung onto one will either forget about them or mix them up with other notes.

finally, this aussie who made this mistake on purpose has a small safe full of them, just sitting. Ready to leak to the market for their inflated sentimental value.
