Edith Cowan (the $50 note)

This polymer $50 note has been with us since 1995, replacing the paper note which featured Ian Clunies-Ross and Howard Florey. That was our first $50 note ever. The little coins go out ... the big notes come in! Edith is on the reverse side of the note, opposite David Unaipon. Edith's side features a picture of the old WA parliament house as well as a foster mother and children (Edith was not in favour of orphanages.)
