The death of Queen Elizabeth II brought a number of changes. According to the rules, in Great Britain, instead of the monarch’s face, King Charles III will appear on banknotes and coins. Her likeness was also shown on the five dollar face value in Australia. It turns out, however, that the citizens of this country do not want to be replaced by the image of the new monarch.

In Australia, a discussion has flared over who is to replace King Elbiet II with a five-dollar face value. The idea reigns in social media for the image of Steve Irwin to appear on the newly designed banknote. For many years, the nature TV presenter has been a hero loved by millions. His sudden death from a stingray bite was a blow to many people.

Some also wonder why the image of King Charles III does not appear “automatically” on an Australian banknote. Andrew Leigh, Deputy Minister of the Treasury, explained during a press conference that the monarch was there because of her “personal” status. Interestingly, the image of the new ruler of the United Kingdom will appear on the coins. According to tradition, his face will be facing away from that of Elizabeth II.
