The Australian ten dollar note is a denomination of Australian currency. The new ten-dollar polymer banknote was issued on 20 September 2017 and depicts the same historical characters that it has since 1993. A portrait of Australian bush poet, journalist and author Andrew Barton "Banjo" Paterson is featured on the obverse of the note, while an Australian writer and journalist Dame Mary Jean Gilmore is featured on the reverse. Each denomination in the new series of Australian dollar banknotes will feature a different species of Australian wattle and a native bird within a number of the security features. On the $10 banknote, these are the Bramble Wattle (Acacia victoriae) and the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita).
