Australia issues new banknotes for the blind

With a single bump on both sides, the new Australian five-dollar note allows blind people to identify money by touch for the first time. The bump is about the size of a chocolate sprinkle. It will directly benefit the roughly 350,000 vision-impaired Australians. The introduction of the new notes is a personal victory for Sydney teenager Connor McLeod, who was born blind and led a campaign calling for tactile features on currency.
