Re: Icons

Australia's old paper banknotes were once awash with scientists - Joseph Banks, 
Howard Florey, 
Ian Clunies Ross and John Tebbutt. Since we changed to polymer banknotes, we 
haven't had a 
single scientist on them. Quite ironic, given that the development of BOPP 
polymer banknotes was 
achieved primarily by Australian scientists.
