Comments

Signature of the Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia.

"In 1991 Note Printing Australia NPA (subsidiary of the Reserve Bank of Australia) issued a special 25th Anniversary of Decimal  Currency Portfolio. The notes came from the archive and consisted of  the last 800 ten shillings, one pound, five pounds and ten pounds issues coupled with the first issue of the one, two, ten and twenty dollar notes. This causing some confusion about the last Prefix issue. These are separated out in the varieties below." from 2017 Pocket Guide to Australian Coins and Banknotes (23rd Edition) by Greg McDonald    page 421
