As I understand it the secret is in the printing process - I wouldn't say it is easy, or it would have been cracked. Yes they do start with a piece of plastic - but it is very thin and slippery. I just can't possibly see how you could come up with anything that approximates the feel of the notes using commercially available materials, especially with a colour copier and a few sheets of transparencies. But go ahead and send me one!

Do you still have any aussie dollars left from your trip? I'm guessing you haven't touched them for a while.
Mark the copier comment is related to the fact you can copy and scan the things and therefore make a good picture so its "only" a case of cracking the printing process.
