It may be the smallest-denominated Australian dollar banknote, but a new design for the Aus$5 bill attracted an outsized amount of criticism when it was unveiled Tuesday, with detractors calling it "hideous" and "like vomit".The note, which will replace its more bland predecessor from September 1, features a yellow Prickly Moses wattle flower and a colorful Eastern Spinebill native bird.The bill even managed to raise the ire of bird lovers.The new bill gives them a bluish underside with a bright blue, yellow, purple and pink wing.
