The first Australians are the indigenous people of the country, who are also called the peoples of the First Nations. Members of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander group are descendants of the world’s oldest continuous culture, living on the continent for more than 65,000 years. Together they make up about 3.2% of the country’s population of 25 million.

The existing $5 bill will remain in circulation and will be legal tender even after the new face is introduced. Coins bearing the Queen’s image will remain in use “forever,” according to the bank.
