Here's The AMAZING Way Aussies Wants To Honour Steve Irwin

Ten years ago, Australians shared a collective moment of shock when Steve Irwin died after being pierced in the chest by a stingray barb. 

Our love for The Crocodile Hunter and his family lives on. 

Aussie man, Kyle Ryan, has shown his utmost appreciation for Steve by starting a Change.org petition asking Malcolm Turnbull to put Steve Irwin on Australian Currency officially. 

The design is ready to roll, after Melbourne artist Aaron Tyler, recently redesigned Australia's bank notes using familiar faces like Irwin's.


The petition asks Australians to band together to pay their respects to “the all time greatest Australian bloke, Steve Irwin. Let's make a change for something in the history of our country. It's been ten years without the Aussie icon, and although he's been recognised in many ways I'd imagine we could all support the idea of going one step further”.

Kyle's petition currently has over 2,200 supporters. 

According to the Courier Mail, Bindi Irwin is thrilled with the idea, saying “It is such an honour that Dad is being considered to be remembered forever on Australian currency. His legacy will continue to inspire us all, he truly changed the world,” 

Do you think Australia is ready for STRAYA CASH?
