I hope it wins out. This would be the ultimate salute to a great man who lead a great life. Around the world Steve is already the face of Australia, why not make it official.

Ryan told BBC,"We started this petition because the newer generation barely knows who is representing our currency." Because of that, Ryan explained,"We believed that having a childhood icon and conservationist like Steve would be a great idea for his 10th anniversary."
