Australia Accidentally Printed $1.6 Billion of Notes With a Typo on Them

By

Whatever mistakes you may have made in the past, rest a little easier knowing that someone in Australia just screwed up a lot more than you ever will. The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) confirmed on Thursday that A$1.6 billion worth of A$50 bank notes recently printed misspelled "responsibility" as "responsibilty"  

The new notes, which contain a number of new security features, depict Edith Cowan, the first female member of an Australian parliament. The lawn that she stands in front of is actually text, which repeats excerpts of her first speech to the Western Australian Parliament : "It is a great responsibility to be the only woman here, and I want to emphasise the necessity which exists for other women being here."
