(KGTV) - Did Australia really print 46 million $50 bills with a typo?


The new $50 was rolled out last October.

It features tiny text from a speech by Edith Cowan, the country's first female member of Parliament.

In that text, the word "responsibility" is misspelled.

The bill was printed 46 million times.

Australia is promising to fix the error in the next print run.
