The following from the RBA is not clear to me:

<<The Bank has today (12 April) released images of the new $5 banknote that 
will be issued into circulation from 1 September 2016. The images show the 
basic design artwork of each side of the banknote.>>

The first sentence suggests it is the final image.  The second says it is the 
"basic design artwork", which suggests to me it is not the final artwork.

The release also says that the flower and bird theme will follow through other 
notes, so one hopes they get it right.

The conservation battle is never finally won; the development battle is.
