Someone Has Reimagined The Aussie Currency And It's A Bloody Ripper

Someone Has Reimagined The Aussie Currency And It's A Bloody Ripper

Australia's currency is certainly one of the more colourful ones compared to the rest of the world.

We've got nearly all the colours of the rainbow for our $5, $10, $10, $20, $50 and $100 notes and they all feature different parts of our country and history.

While it's certainly not going to be changed anytime soon, it never hurts to have a think about what it would look like if it was modernised. Well, one person has decided to give it a crack and it's bloody incredible.

Starting off with the humble five dollar note, this artist has ditched the picture of Parliament House in Canberra or Queen Elizabeth II and instead opted for a classic shot of Aussie icon Dame Edna.

To just add a bit more tru-blu spirit, there are two meat pies in the background. The clear security section has also been changed to the VB logo.

Upgrading to the tenner, we've got a big ole mugshot of Ned Kelly with the original Wiggles in the background and a donkey on the right. The security section has been switched for a silhouette of a barbeque because what's more Australian than a bloody barbie.

The artist has dialled it up a notch for the $20 note by switching out Australian merchant Mary Reibey and presbyterian minister John Flynn and instead opting for former Today Show host Karl Stefanovic, a ute with a massive bull bar and a classic country pub.

Now we're getting into the last two notes and they're corkers.

Shane Warne has been on the list of legendary Australians since the mid-2000s because of his cricketing prowess. So it's no surprise he's been included on the face of the imaginary $50 note with a BBQd prawn on the security section.

But people across Australia would be clambering to get their hands on this artist's $100 because it features two of the most iconic Australians ever: Steve 'The Crocodile Hunter' and John 'You're The Voice' Farnham. The security section also features a big ass truck.

It's worth noting that all the notes have 'BUCKS' written on them instead of dollars because, let's be honest, that's what we call them.

So while we're all in favour of keeping the notes as they are, we can dream about what it would be like playing Two Up on Anzac Day screaming out 'Two Warneys on heads'. That would be incredible.
