Australia Printed 46 Million $50 Notes with a Typo


Oops! The Reserve Bank of Australia just printed 46 million $50 banknotes with a typo. The word responsibility is spelled incorrectly.

The bill was introduced last October.

One side of the bill depicts Edith Cowan, the first woman to serve in Australia's parliament.

It also features micro text from her first-ever speech to the Western Australian parliament, which is where the typo comes in...

"It is a great responsibilty [sic] to be the only woman here, and I want to emphasize the necessity which exists for other women being here," it says. The misspelling occurs three times on the note.
