The Three Muses Challenge - Money

In spite of the statement that this Australian banknote is legal tender, that's a lie, and the Governor of the Reserve Bank is not Bart Simpson.  I had some fun making my own version of our $50 banknote.
Australian paper money is very colorful and high tech with indestructible clear plastic inserts and other means to thwart the forgers.
