Melbourne-based artist Aaron Tyler created 'Straya Cash,' which is an artistic collection of new banknotes for Australia. This clever art project honors iconic Australians by placing their faces on the colorful pieces of paper currency.

By honoring famous people and monumental moments on something that is used every day, it will ensure that the icon's legacy lives on. The new banknotes feature a wide variety of Australian talent. A few of the highlighted icons include Steve Irwin, Kylie Minogue and Iggy Azalea.

The pieces of colorful paper range from yellow and green to pink and red. Each black and white image of a famous Australian is placed atop a colorful background, which ensures that each image is recognizable and eye-catching.
