    They were billed as innovative, next-generation banknotes with added security -- but Australia's new $50 note also contain another feature: An unfortunate typo.

    The $50 note (US$34.9) which entered general circulation last October has anti-counterfeiting measures including a swan that appears to fly and a holographic 50 that reverses when the note is moved.

    Around 400 million new notes were printed -- and 46 million of them are in circulation, according to the central bank the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA). The total value of the notes in circulation is around $2.3 billion (US$1.6 billion).

    But an eagle-eyed observer has spotted a problem with the new notes: The word "Responsibility" is missing an "i."
