Australia has one of the lowest rates of counterfeiting in the world, but police recommend residents learn what to do if they suspect a note is fake.

They should compare the note with one believed to be genuine, handle it as little as possible and store it in an envelope.

A real note is printed on plastic, hard to tear and springs back if scrunched. A genuine note should have a white image on the clear window that cannot be scratched off, and should have a coat of arms and diamond pattern when held up to the light. Print should appear sharp.

A suspect banknote may feel too thick or thin and have irregularities in lines or colours.

Always record information about where the suspect note came from and report it to police.
