This One Pound was issued between August 1933 and September 1938 and heralded in a new design. With the passing of George V in 1936, it was also the very last George V One Pound issued.
The departure from the gold standard in 1932 saw a major overhaul of Australia’s banknotes. Instead of a promise to redeem the note for its value in gold, new wording on all notes proclaimed the following: “This note is legal tender for One Pound in the Commonwealth and all territories under the control of the Commonwealth”.
The size of the new note was also reduced to make it more workable in every day usage.
This is a top-quality banknote. Uncirculated and superb, it’s as fresh as the day it was printed, crisp and clean with razor sharp edges and strong colour.
This is everything you would want in a top-quality banknote. Including the price.
